Opening JPX files

Did your computer fail to open a JPX file? We explain what JPX files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your JPX files.

What is a JPX file?

Files that contain the .jpx file extension are normally associated with JPEG 2000 files. The JPEG 2000 file format is an improved version of the traditional JPEG-1 file format.

Like the JPEG-1 file format, the JPEG 2000 file format allows for image transparency and the retention of alpha spot channels, however, the JPX files can also contain additional metadata within the files that describe the contents of the file, such as the resolution of the image and the color space that is used to encode the image.

The JBuilder software application also uses the .jpx file suffix. This software uses the .jpx file extension for project files that are created by the program.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
