Is there any light weight image editor that can support *.pgm format in linux?

any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have used gimp but it's too big size.



It's in universe ubuntu repos and is lighter than gimp. I recommend.

    I saw your comment in the answer and removed it from answer because that is not the place. However This page says inkscape can do fileinfo.com/extension/pgm – Anwar Nov 4 '16 at 19:09

Inkscape which seems to support .pgm extension (disclaimer: I haven't tested it). Install it with

sudo apt install inkscape


This page reports that netpbm can be a cli solution for *.pgm extensions too. Try it. This is the homepage of Netpbm.
