What is JP2 file extension?

Files with the JP2 extension are used to store digital raster images. Most often it is data compressed in a lossy or lossless manner. Data compression in JP2 files is implemented using the JPEG 2000 standard, which is considered more efficient than the JPEG standard.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the JP2 file.

What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the JP2 file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the JP2 file may be incorrectly linked (associated) with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this link by yourself. To do this, right-click on the JP2 file # that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the JP2 file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the JP2 file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
