WBMP is a bitmaps wireless application protocol. Files with the extension .wbmp contain bitmap black and white images. In WBMP format monochrome images are in pixels. Pixels are presented in the form of units, are stored as white and pixels, represented as pairs are stored as black. WBMP images are used in a variety of mobile phones.
This format is used to compress TIFF images when sending them via fax machines. This format helps reduce the data transmission time. Group 3 eliminates redundant data during compression in order to reduce file size. The standard 10:1 compression ratio may be increased to the user's preferences, but it can lead to a significant loss of image quality.
