JP2 is a bitmap image format. The JP2 format, i.e. JPEG 2000 image, was developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group. The JP2 file can be in the form of a photograph, drawing, digital fax, etc. File type: JPEG 2000 Core Image File. JPEG 2000 is the patent-pending bitmap image format. It has been licensed free of charge, and now it is an international standard (ISO / IEC 15444-1: 2004). Compared to the previous JPEG-1 standard, JPEG 2000 uses a completely different method to compress data (wavelet transform, wavelet transform). This method generally ensures higher image quality. It also gives a more compact file size. The JP2 format has a lot in common with the JPEG format, which is now especially popular. However, it differs in that it uses wavelet transform technology for compression, and discrete cosine transform has found application in JPEG. Using the first technology, you can get a better image, even when the file size is relatively smaller. There are also JP2 files with the extensions .J2K, JPF, MJ2, JPX and JPM. In order to open a file of this format, that is, to edit, use programs such as Mozilla Firefox, Adobe Photoshop, ACD Systems ACDSee, Google Chrome.
EMF is a vector graphics file for Windows operating system applications. Most image editing applications recognize it. The format was developed in 2007 by Microsoft. This is an integral part of Windows and a version of the original Windows Metafile Format (WMF), extended and expanded. It only supports 16-bit data. Image color data is stored in RGB format. There is no support for CMYK data. EMF (i.e. Enhanced Windows Metafile) can be used as a graphical language for printer drivers. It is used, in particular, to store collections of graphic images of Microsoft Clip Gallery. WMF also found application when it is necessary to transfer information through the clipboard (clipboard). From the Windows operating system, writing and reading to a file of this format can be carried out quickly and without problems. An EMF file is opened using a variety of utilities. For this, for example, IrfanView, CorelDRAW, Inkscape and GIMP are suitable. EMF files, like WMF, have a list of entries. Each of them is a specific team for drawing. Arguments that were 16-bit in WMF became 32-bit in EMF. EMF has features that introduce new arguments.
