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.
JPC is a bitmap image format that uses advanced JPEG 2000 wave compression. It is classified as a JPEG 2000 Code Stream File. JPEG 2000, in turn, is a popular standard for compressing wavelet image data. The .JPC extension supports color depths of 8, 24, and 32 bits per pixel. Also supports grayscale, RGB, YCbCr, XYZ and Lab color space. The file was developed by the standards committee of the Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPC is the successor to the JPEG image format, which is very popular and very common. The updated format is able to provide many additional features. In particular, color spaces. JPC has also gained fame as a variant of JPEG2000. It belongs to a large group of formats that bring a variety of updates to the original JPEG format. For example, J2C, JPM, or J2K. The .jpc file extension is a JPEG 2000 image stream file. This file can be opened using programs such as Corel PaintShop Pro X9, Adobe Photoshop Elements 14, Adobe Photoshop CC, ACD Systems ACDSee 20. You can also save memory snapshot files in the format JPC These JPC files are used by Java application developers.
