J2K represents an upgrade of the JPEG format, including more features, such as supporting transparency and alpha channel, or lossless compression. J2K is part of a larger pack of improved JPEG extensions, known as JPEG2000, together with formats such as J2C, JPX, JPM or JP2. Most of these formats are compatible with mainstream image viewers, but do not enjoy the popularity of JPEG.
PCL (Printer Command Language) is a format associated with Hewlett-Packard printers, containing a standardized protocol that facilitates communication between computers and printers. PCL files contain commands related to features such as: drawing tools, font rendering, macros, Unicode symbols, raster areas etc.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert J2Ks. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
Start reaConverter and load all the .j2k files you intend to convert into .pcl because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select J2Ks from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .pcl files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the PCL as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
