About This Download
HD Photo is used in XML Paper Specification (XPS) documents to deliver a lightweight, high-performance algorithm with a small memory footprint that enables practical, in-device encoding and decoding. HD Photo delivers image quality that is comparable to JPEG-2000 and more than twice the quality of JPEG.
Windows Media Photo has been renamed HD Photo. Both names refer to the same file format. Some Windows products still refer to the HD Photo implementation as Windows Media Photo.
This download contains version 1.0, the released version, of the HD Photo specification and is fully compatible with the version of HD Photo (Windows Media Photo) that is currently shipping with Windows Vista, Windows Image Component (WIC), and .NET Framework 3.0.
Most technologies in the JPEG XR Standard are based on the HD Photo file format. The JPEG XR Standard is also known as the ISO/IEC Standard 29199-2 and as the ITU-T Recommendation T.832.
