Converting XPS to WMF

XPS is a proprietary format used by Microsoft for documents that can contain single-page or multi-page text and images, arranged in a fixed layout. The function and features of XPS files are very similar to those of PDFs, except the former is based on the XML markup language, whereas the latter uses PostScript. The XPS format is supported by software in the Office pack, as well as by Windows OS — as opposed to PDF, which can be opened only using a specialized program (often not for free). XPS files are often used in graphics design and desktop publishing for their ability to render high quality images during pre-press processing.

The WMF (Windows Metafile) format represents an image file with vector graphics, bitmap components or raster graphics, consisting mainly of drawing operations and commands. It was developed and released in the late 1980s by Microsoft and it included a 16-bit structure. In time WMF files were replaced by EMFs, featuring a 32-bit structure. WMFs are currently compatible with some programs from the Microsoft Office pack, such as Word, Power Point or Publisher.
