The Joint Photographic Expert Group (Jpeg) has agreed to consider the submission of Microsoft's HD Photo file format as an open standard.

The standards body has accepted a first working draft for the proposed 'Jpeg XR' standard. It will move to committee in November and a final draft will be considered in March. If approved, the format could become an International Standards Organization (ISO) approved 'draft international standard' by July next year.

As part of the certification process, Microsoft will provide a royalty free licence for the intellectual property, allowing developers of photo editing software, operating systems and device manufacturers to support it free of charge.

The company itself meanwhile already is applying the HD Photo technology in Windows Vista and applications such as Windows Live Virtual Earth.
