What is JPEG2000?
JPEG2000 is a format for storing and publishing image files. Developed in 2000, it is a newer version of the better-known JPEG format, which is widely used for working with images. JPEG2000 software has some advantages over regular JPEG software, such as better compression capabilities, but there is still some loss of quality in the compression process. Additionally, JPEG2000 is less widely used than other image file formats, so this can complicate transmitting files to others who do not have JPEG2000 software.
What is JPEG2000 software?
JPEG2000 software includes any program for working with JPEG2000 files, including viewing them, editing and compressing. In addition to working with JPEG2000 files specifically, some software can convert from JPEG2000 to other formats, such as PDF. This can be useful for uploading files to the Web or sharing them with people who do not have JPEG2000 software and cannot view the original file.
