New JPEG format:- Windows Media Photo

Last Wednesday Microsoft unveiled their new image format. It is called Windows Media Photo and will be supported in Windows Vista.
Microsoft claims the new format has a very high compression level that can result in half the size of a JPEG file.Not only does compression save storage space, which is especially important for devices such as cell phones and digital cameras, a smaller file can also print faster, transfer faster and help conserve battery life on devices.
We will have to wait and see how this turns out but Windows Media Photo (WMP) was developed by the same people who worked on Windows Media Video (WMV) and Audio (WMA), so it should be rather good!

Windows Media Photo will be supported in Windows Vista and also be made available for Windows XP.
