Title Description
Blog Entry Microsoft's HD Photo file format Microsoft's Bill Crowe discusses the name and licensing changes for HD Photo (formerly known as Windows Media Photo). Nice that it is free and all, but it is hard to see why this is anyone would use it. If I wanted the very best quality photos, I would go with RAW (or Adobe's DNG). And if I didn't mind a lossy format, either the current JPEG or the new JPEG2000 are better choices (see this quality comparison between HDPhoto and JPEG2000). (via Data Compression News Blog)
