What is a .JP2 file?

jp2 file icon

JP2 files are 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. You can use File Viewer Plus to open, edit, and save JP2 images. You can also convert JP2 files to other image formats, such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, and BMP.

Alternate file extensions: .jpx, .jpc
