ECW (acronym for Enhanced Compression Wavelet) is a proprietary graphic file format typically used for representing aerial or satellite images. Also, this file format can store continuous graphic data per layer up to 255 bands.
Moreover, ECW files feature support for lossy compression which means that large images can be compressed with no quality loss.
When users want to modify ECW images, they will need to find a compatible graphic editor.
