New HD photo format in Vista

  • Microsoft is looking to supplant the ubiquitous JPEG with an image format of its own--and it's hoping the debut of Windows Vista will help do the job.
  • In 2006, Microsoft began promoting its own image standard, formerly called Windows Media Photo but renamed HD Photo in November.
  • "HD" doesn't actually stand for "high definition," but it's supposed to connote the better image quality that comes with HD TV.
  • Compared with JPEG, HD Photo preserves more subtle details, offers richer colors and takes up half the storage space at the same image quality.
  • Microsoft built HD Photo support into Windows Vista, consumer versions of which go on sale Tuesday. That means camera manufacturers increasingly will be able to count on HD Photo support when customers upload their images to a computer, and software such as Web browsers will be able to display and save HD Photo images.
