This came up when opening sd card. Not heard of it before so needed to make sure it was ok.
I had a pop up on my computer when looking at pictures from a recent overseas holiday. I did not know what JXR Files were nor had I heard of them. I wanted to find out what they were and if they were safe.
When I first used Windows Photo Gallery after downloading it, I got a pop-up asking me if I wanted to use it to open JXR files. According to a Wikipedia article, JXR is an improvement on the JPEG format but no camera makers use it because it's not supported by the widely-used Adobe photo editing software.
Oh, I thought I wrote my comment in the question box, so I said Hi and I really meant it, I am asking because I'm just like all the other people wondering the same question thanks to M.S. So with that I'll say Goodbye
What is .JXR Photo file about, and can it be converted to .JPG or .JPEG or other photo formats?
