JXR is a raster image category file format whose full name is JPEG XR Image. JXR files were created so that you can support better compression and also become more accurate than .JPG files. The development of the image, which is stored in JPEG XR format, has been handled by Microsoft from the very beginning for its Windows Media program. Implements support for images with a color depth of 48 bits of RGB. Used when professional high-resolution image editing is required. Also provides lossy and lossless compression support. JPEG XR, formerly called HD Photo and Windows Media Photo, is an encoding standard. This is the file format for still images. It was patented by Microsoft. This standard supports Windows Vista, like any operating system on which the .NET Framework 3.0 is installed. It defines color formats for printing and displaying. It also defines special encoding in order to expand the dynamic range, lossless and lossy compression functions, as well as efficient decoding for many resolutions with minimal computer resources in order to convert or decode. JPEG XR is inherently high performance. For example, with 85% quality, there are practically no artifacts.
MNG is an image file category format. It supports all possible PNG and JPEG compression algorithms (including gamma correction and translucency) in order to create animated images. It was available in the Mozilla browser from 2000 to 2003. Now supported by Konqueror browser. MNG, i.e. Multiple-image Network Graphics, has the closest connection with PNG. In 1995, when they started developing the PNG format, it was decided not to include animation support. For a simple reason: then this feature was used infrequently. And yet, we started working on MNG, that is, the version of PNG that supports animation. The initial version of the MNG specification was born in early 2001. The MNG format is a simplified raster analogue of Adobe Flash. Each frame has many layers, and they can be moved relative to each other, scaled, cropped. This explains the complexity of supporting the MNG format. As a result, the MNG file structure resembles the PNG structure. The only difference is the identification tag. And also that much more options of blocks (chunk) are applied. MNG frames are saved as PNG or JNG. Compared to GIF, this format supports animation. Compared to JPEG, it provides the smallest file size due to compression loss. Compared to PNG, compression is done without distortion. Now MNG is not supported by popular browsers and software, since it was replaced by a simpler APNG format.
