Windows Metafile

File extension .wmf
File category images
Description WMF format is a positional graphics domiciled with Windows; it aids the direct display of an image on the screen of a device, in a particular way. Though a graphical format, the WMF is not limited to use in image files. Any object – text, image, video all require a code for pixel displacement to enjoy accurate rendering, made possible by WMF in early PCs. WMF format also assists with holding copied information, and subsequent pasting in another document or environment. Though initially designed as a format that saves documents in 16-bit fragments, WMF equally supports 24-bit RGB-color palette and is used for exporting graphics from one application to the other.
Technical details Microsoft released the first version of the WMF file type in 1988, as a part of Windows 3.0. However, with the 3.1 updates of Windows in 1992, significant upgrades were made to the format. The latest update to Windows MetaFile was released to the public in 2006. To date, the WMF file format still enjoys relevance in Microsoft Office packages like Word and PowerPoint. Since JPG and GIF have stolen the show among image file formats, WMF's popularity has waned, though it is still compatible with several computer programs. Graphical Device Interface is a series of commands that make a real-time drawing made possible by the WMF, which holds some code before displaying the image on the screen.

Microsoft Enhanced Metafile (32-bit)

File extension .emf
File category images
Description The Enhanced Metafile (EMF) file system began its journey of evolution when Microsoft included the Windows Metafile (WMF) format in the 1992 documentation of the Windows 3.1 Operating System. The WMF format was used to store collections of graphical drawing, the type peculiar with Windows positional graphics. However, due to some major compatibility issues, WMF was improved to EMF in the Windows NT 3.1 update. EMF formats stores coloured graphical data using the RGB colour scheme, CMYK is not supported. In recent times, the EMF format is incorporated into driver software for printers, thus assisting PCs to communicate graphical data to installed printers.
Technical details Unlike the 16-bit WMF format, EMF supports a wider device communication channel – 32-bit. Files with .emf extensions permit cross-compatibility between technologies that support positional graphics alone or bitmaps alone. EMF documents do not store data alone, but also include instructions on how constituent data should be handled.
