    Actually, the rendering will be faster, thanks to wavelets, because you don't need the whole image to be decoded. On Jpeg you need to decode the whole image, which, on very large image could be very long. On JPEG2000 you could decode a part of the image, for example, what you're currently looking at.

      But how many of them still work? I tried official gif2mng converter, and it wouldn't work for me at all.
