Kodak FlashPix (FPX) is a complex raster image file format intended for use with photographic images. It was developed by Eastman Kodak, in collaboration with Hewlett-Packard, Live Picture, and Microsoft. It is based on Microsoft Compound File format.

A FlashPix file contains either a single image, or multiple representations of the same image at different resolutions.

The format is tile-oriented. A tile may use JPEG compression, or be uncompressed. There is also a scheme to efficiently encode tiles whose pixels are all the same color.
