Opening JPM files

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

What is the .JPM file type?

The .jpm filename extension belongs to the JPEG 2000 Compound Image File Format (.jpm) as defined in the JPEG 2000 Part 6 (ISO/IEC 15444-6:2013) standard. JPEG 2000 is the name of a wavelet-based image compression method and a family of image file formats, developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) and adopted in a series of international standards (ISO 15444). The JPEG 2000 Part 6 compound image format is specifically intended for document and fax imaging.

Unlike regular JPEG 2000 images (.jp2, .j2k), the .jpm file is a compound, multi-layered JPEG 2000 image. It may contain multiple pages with multiple raster objects in different encodings (JPEG, JPEG 2000, JBIG) on each page, arranged according to a certain layout and composited through the Mixed Raster Content (MRC) model. JPM files are used for 'digital originals,' preserving scanned document copies along with other images/text and embedded XML metadata.

JPM images can be directly opened and viewed using several multi-format image viewers as well as commercial JPEG-2000 implementations (e.g. LuraTech JPEG 2000) and end-user applications based on them.
