Microsoft have announced their new image format which is a competitor to standards like JPEG and PNG.
Windows Media Photo is a new file format for continuous-tone still images that surpasses the limitations of existing image formats.

Windows Media Photo supports a wide range of features including:
  • Multiple color formats for display or print
  • Fixed or floating point high dynamic range image encoding
  • Lossless or high quality lossy compression
  • Extremely efficient decoding for multiple resolutions and sub-regions
  • Minimal overhead for format conversion or transformations during decode

Windows Media Photo delivers a lightweight, high performance algorithm with a small memory footprint that enables practical, in-device encoding and decoding.
