What is a CPF file?

A CPF file is a settings profile created and used by Caesium, a free image compression tool for Windows. It contains a list of a user's Caesium settings, written in plain text. CPF files specify the compression settings, file format, resizing settings, and output directory Caesium uses while compressing images.

Caesium is a free tool that allows users to compress, resize, and convert images. While manipulating images, users can specify a number of compression- and resizing-related settings. For example, users can choose their desired image quality, file format, and size. Users can also specify where Caesium should save compressed images.

If a user wants to save their current Caesium settings, so they can quickly apply the settings in the future, they can do so by selecting File → Save Profile... from Caesium's menu bar. This saves the user's settings in a CPF file.

CPF files are plain text files that, when opened in a text editor such as Microsoft Notepad, show a user's settings as a simple text list. CPF files always start with the header [Profile], before listing a user's quality, format, output, and resizing settings.

How do I open a CPF file?

You can open a CPF file in Caesium (Windows). To do so, select File → Load Profile... from Caesium's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your CPF file.

If you do not have access to Caesium, or you just want to see the plain text information your CPF file contains, you can also open the file in any text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (Windows) or Apple TextEdit (Mac).
