JPF is a raster image category file format that is the successor to the .JPEG image format. Like some other file name extensions (.jpx, .jp2, .j2k), the .jpf extension refers to the JPEG 2000 image format. It is needed to designate the JPEG 2000 Image file type. And JPEG 2000 files are an international standard (ISO / IEC 15444) bitmap format. It was developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group, JPEG. It serves as a good replacement for the JPEG standard, which is older, but, as before, is in demand and widespread. Compared to JPEG in JPF format, wavelet compression is used, due to the alpha channel transparency is supported, as well as a variety of color models. Also, compared to JPEG, this format provides better scalability of images, provides the ability to achieve smaller file sizes and have a higher level of quality. The format is able to combine compression with losses and without losses. Provides support for image transparency and additional metadata information. It can be viewed in QuickTime Player 7, as in recent versions of Photoshop, provided that the JPEG2000.8bi plugin is installed. Many images also have the extension .JP2 or .JPX.
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.
