Pixmap Format: By default, when you create a new empty bitmap column, it will use the file format indicated in the field as the new column format. The default value is SCAN, which means that it is set for scanned-in drawings.
Scan Type: By default, the Scan Type is set to 2 which indicates that the element is a TVG vector drawing. This function returns a string that is the scan type of the element. The scan type is COLOR, GRAY_SCALE or BW.
Vector Type: By default, the Vector Type is set to 2 which indicates that the element is a TVG vector drawing. This function returns the vector type for the given element. In theory, there is support for multiple types of vector drawing. In practice, only TVG has been implemented. The value 0: indicates that the element is NOT a vector drawing. It is an IMAGE type.

Scan Type: By default, the Scan Type is set to 2 which equals vector import. This means that the imported bitmap images will be placed into a Drawing layer. Scan type 1 is bitmap import.
