JNG file - JPEG Network Graphic file

What is jng file? How to open jng files?

File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

jng file icon: jng filetype icon

The jng file extension is related to a special bitmap image format meant for network and internet distribution.

JNG was created as an adjunct to the MNG animation format, but may be used as a stand-alone format. JNG files embed an 8-bit or 12-bit JPEG datastream in order to store color data, and may embed another datastream (1, 2, 4, 8, 16 bit PNG, or 8 bit JPEG grayscale image) for transparency information. Actually, a JNG may contain two separate JPEG datastreams for color information (one eight-bit and one twelve-bit) to permit decoders that are unable to (or do not wish to) handle twelve-bit datastreams to display the eight-bit datastream instead, if one is present.

Help how to open:

Several image viewers, such as Xnview or ACDsee can open and view this file type.

How to convert:

Much like other graphics formats, even JNG format can be exported and saved to other bitmap formats.
