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.
J2K is a raster image category file format. It is a compressed bitmap using wave compression instead of DCT compression, which is used by standard .JPEG images. The format supports 16-bit color, alpha transparency and lossless compression. The file type is JPEG 2000 Image. The J2K file format was developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG). J2K is an update to the JPEG format that includes original features. Say alpha channel support and lossless compression. J2K is a segment of a large package of updated JPEG extensions. They gained fame as JPEG2000. Such as J2C, JPX, JPM or JP2. The lion's share of such formats are combined with the main programs so that you can view images. However, JPEG is particularly popular. For those who specialize in photography, it is important that they have the opportunity to reduce the file size, while saving it on disk with the same frame size and at the same high visual quality. How to get out of this situation? You can, for example, store images in JPEG2000 format with the file extension jp2 or j2k. The compression algorithm and the format itself have been known for over 10 years. Nevertheless, there is no need to talk about its widespread use. That's because his "big brother" JPEG is firmly holding on to its position.
