Opening djvu files

Have a problem opening a .djvu file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what djvu files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .DJVU file type?

Files with the .djvu file extension contain high-resolution compressed digital images. DjVu files are commonly used for storing scanned books, magazines, newspapers, documents, catalogs, etc. in electronic form and then sharing them on the Web. DjVu files take a minimum amount of space and therefore are quicker to upload and download.

Promoted as an alternative to PDF, the DjVU file format employs image layer separation and a three-tiered advanced compression technology to make resulting files smaller and more easily managed. The original image is first divided into mask, background, and foreground, and then each new image is compressed separately.
