    The HD Photo standard was formerly known as Windows Media Photo, and later received another name, JPEG XR, under which Microsoft is trying to promote the new format as an international standard through the Joint Photographic Expert Group (JPEG).

    The new generation HD Photo format was created specifically for saving digital photos, it supports up to 32 bits per pixel and has the characteristics of RAW-formats of digital cameras. This standard should replace obsolete JPEG and RAW formats.
