Converting J2K to XBM

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.

The XBM (X BitMap) format represents a monochrome image file usually used for storing cursor and icon bitmaps in the X graphical user interface. XBMs store data as C language data array, so they can be included directly into an application. They are, however, fairly large in size. In the late 1980s the XBM format was superseded by the XPM format for the X Windows System.
