Converter JPF to PFM

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.

PFM is a font metric data file. It is also one of the formats of the font file category. This applies to fonts in the Adobe Type 1 (= postscript) category used by the Microsoft Windows operating system. The format contains font character sizes. He asks for the font associated file extension .PFB. It does not have the glyphs of the font itself, but with its help, the correct display of the PFB file is obtained. PFM files, that is, the Printer Font Metrics File, contain metric information about the fonts that applications use to lay out lines of text in a document. PostScipt Type 1 fonts have multiple files. The package usually comes with a couple of files with the extensions PFB and PFM. However, there may be 3 files with the extensions AFM, PFB and INF, or all 4 files - PFM, PFB, INF, AFM. Windows 7 and Windows Vista must have PFM. Modern versions of Windows have built-in tools for installing fonts of all formats. The installation procedure is the same for all font formats, but it differs for different versions of Windows. After installation, you may need to restart the application. Only then will the new fonts appear in the font list. You can open the PFM file using programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Windows Font Viewer, Microsoft Windows.
