File extension .MPO
|CIPA Multi-Picture Format||CIPA||Raster Image Files|
The MPO (Multi Picture Object) file extension is a format commonly used by digital still cameras for 3D images. As many digital still cameras are now capable of shooting in 3D, this file type allows them to store the two separate components that make up each image, such as left frame and right frame. Depending on the camera brand, MPO files can also contain other information, such as shooting parameters and certain thumbnail data. They are typically stored in memory cards using the .JPG or .JPEG format.
Advantages of MPO Files
MPO files are able to deliver high quality immersive images while still being relatively small in size. Compared to other image format extensions, MPO pictures have higher resolution and better compatibility with Google Photos, Microsoft Photos, and Adobe Photoshop. This makes them suitable for online sharing since they load faster on almost all web browsers. Also, MPO files can easily be converted to other standard image formats, such as .BMP, .PNG, .TIFF and .GIF.
How to Access MPO Files
Using most photo-editing programs and some basic 3D software such as Blender, it is possible to open, read, and edit an MPO file. It is also possible to convert one into a stereo anaglyph format for 3D views through glasses. Windows Operating Systems running with Media Center Extensions support MPO files natively, and they can be opened using Microsoft's Photo Gallery. On Linux Systems a package exists called mpofix which enables users to view these types of files.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .MPO) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .MPO extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .MPO file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .MPO extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .MPO extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .MPO file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .MPO file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .MPO file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .MPO file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .MPO file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
