JPC is a raster image format developed to be a replacement for the discrete cosine transform-based JPEG method (usually used for encoding JPEG image files) with the wavelet compression algorithm.
Because JPC files are saved using either lossy or lossless compression, users will have to keep this in mind when they have to convert them to other image formats.
JPC images also come with support for color depths of 8, 24, and 32 bits per pixel and grayscale, XYZ, RGB, YCbCr, and Lab color spaces.
Users will usually convert their JPC images to other graphic formats to be able to open and edit them using a wider array of apps.
JPC converters will also offer their users the option to also select the output image format they prefer.
