CR2 is a graphic file format developed by the manufacturer of camcorders and cameras Canon. This means that all images made by the equipment of this manufacturer are saved by default in CR2 format (short name from Canon Raw Image File). One of the most attractive properties of images of the specified format is their high quality, even if the file is being edited (color balance, contrast, brightness change). Data for the CR2 format image is obtained directly from the matrix. Among the main drawbacks of the format are the large file size, as well as poor compatibility with other software products.
J2C is an advanced version of the JPEG format, which is now widely adopted in order to transfer and store digital images. This is a raster image category file. Full name - JPEG 2000 Code Stream. The J2C file format was created by Joint Photographic Experts Group. A format is a lot of advanced features, including efficient coding. The .j2c file extension is a JPEG 2000 image file. This bitmap is created using JPEG 2000 compression. The compression is close to standard .JPG compression. However, it uses a new coding standard, and it is flexible due to computational complexity. Many applications that support standard .JP2 files can view it. A file with the J2C extension opens in the Windows operating system. To view and process a bitmap image in J2C format, you need to use programs such as Corel PaintShop Pro X9, IvanView, ACD Systems Canvas 16, ImageMagick. Using the programs that have been listed, you can convert images, pictures and drawings of the specified format.
