What is MPO file?

MPO file extension was created by The Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for storing pictures taken with a photocamera equipped with multiple stereoscopic lens system, such as Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D series. MPO file contains two 2D images in JPG format that are combined to created a single 3D image. Each file can also contain metadata.

MPO format usage

MPO (Multi Picture Object) files are used for viewing images on devices that support 3D technology, usually on 3D TV. Images stored as MPO files can be converted to anaglyph image (stereoscopic 3D digital image) with a stereoscopic image processing software, and viewed by using special 3D glasses.

More information about MPO file format

  1. MPO format was initally designed to store only two images, but at some point the concept was changed and now a single file can hold unlimited number of JPG files. Still, most MPO files hold just two images.
  2. MPO images are also used by Nintendo 3DS game console.
  3. MPO file opened using any standard image viewer will only show a single image, usually the one on the left side.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the MPO file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the MPO file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the MPO file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the MPO file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the MPO file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
