Netpbm (originally named Pbmplus) is an open source image processing toolkit, originally released in 1988. It has its own native image file formats: PBM/PGM/PPM/PNM and PAM.

It includes a library, and a collection of utility programs. Relevant to file formats is its extensive suite of image format conversion utilities, which convert various formats to or from one of its native formats. Most of the utilities are self-contained, with only a few common third-party libraries (libtiff, libjpeg, libpng, zlib) required by some utilities.
