What is JP2 file?
The JP2 file extension stands for JPEG 2000 Core Image File. It is a type of image file that was designed to replace the JPEG format. JP2 files are typically used for digital photography and high-resolution printing. The JP2 file format has been accepted and standardized by ISO and IEC, but it is not as popular as the JPG format. JP2 files usually have a larger size than JPG files due to their higher resolution, but they also can retain more information than the JPG format.
