Compress Files in JPEG2000 Format
What is JPEG2000 Format?
JPEG2000, also known as JP2, is a format for storing image files and publishing them on the Web. JPEG2000 is a newer version of the more commonly known JPEG format; it was introduced in the year 2000. Both JPEG and JPEG2000 are compressed image file formats, which are useful for saving space, but have the drawback of reduced image quality. In addition, another problem is that JPEG2000 is not very widespread, and so this poses a problem when sending files to be opened on other computers.
How Can I Compress Files in JPEG2000 Format?
You can compress files directly in JPEG2000 format, or you can convert them into a different format and work with them in that format.

It may be useful to keep files in JPEG2000 format if you are using software that works with JPEG2000, but it may be better to convert to PDF if you plan to share files with other people and post them online, or if you are interested in OCRing the file, for example.
