Kodak’s Photo Compact Disc (PCD) format is a multi-resolution compressed graphic file format commonly used by Kodak especially on its Pro Photo CD discs. Since PCD files are only used by Kodak, most of the time Kodak users might have difficulties to open and convert the photo format into other widely supported formats such as JPG, BMP, etc via some photo editors or graphics conversion programs. This will stop users from using the photos such as exporting to presentation slides, upload to photo sharing sites, etc. If users couldn’t find other conversion application, probably they can try up pcdtojpeg app.
