What is a .JP2 file?

JP2 files are images saved in the JPEG 2000 (JP2) Core Coding format, which was developed in the late 1990s to replace the JPEG standard. The format supports any color bit depth and image metadata and may be compressed with lossy or lossless compression. While the JPEG 2000 format never replaced the JPEG format, it is still used today for storing digital photos and medical images, such as MRI and X-ray scans.

You may encounter JP2 files in various ways, including downloading images from the Internet or receiving images via email from friends, family members, and co-workers. File Viewer Plus can open, edit, and save JP2 images. The software can also convert JP2 files to other image formats, such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, and BMP.

Alternate file extensions: .jpc, .jpx, .j2k
