JPEG Extended?

The popular image format, JPEG from Joint Photographic Experts Group, is to be extended to a format called JPEG XR. JPEG XR will be based on Microsoft's HD Photo Spec and will allow High Definitions pictures apparently.

Major camera manufacturers and other giants like Adobe will have to amend their products to handle the new format.

The new format features better compression techniques, better image fidelity, and enhanced in-camera editing features among others.

JPEG XR for now, is just a paper-standard, and will take almost a year or two to come to the level of JPEG in terms of usage and adaptability. Microsoft has already opened up some of its HD Photo Specs for developers to study and work on. For now, keep looking out! :P
