What is a JPF file?

A JPF file is an image saved in the JPEG 2000 (JP2) format, which is a successor to the .JPEG image format. It supports image transparency and may incorporate lossy or lossless compression. JPF files may also store metadata that describes the image.

JPF files typically store digital photos. However, they may also store other types of images, such as satellite map imagery or medical scans.

The JP2 format was created in 2000 by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) committee to replace the JPEG format. However, the reception of the format was minimal as the JPEG format is still overwhelmingly favored.

Most JPEG 2000 images are saved as .JP2 or .JPX files, and may also be saved as .J2K files. However, some applications, like Adobe Photoshop create JPF files when you save an image in the JPEG 2000 format.
