File Extension DJVU

A .DJVU file (déjà vu file) is used for storing scanned documents. This image format was developed at AT&T labs. The open source implementation of DJVU is available under the GNU General Public License. This is a high compression format that allows for high-resolution images to be compressed and distributed over the Internet.
The DJVU format separates an image into foreground and background objects and then uses wavelet technology to compress the background while maintaining a high quality foreground. This allows for achieving a high compression up to 10 times more than the JPEG file format and up to 8 times more than the TIFF file format.
