File extension: MPO
File type: Multi-Picture Object

Notes about the MPO file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The MPO file type is primarily associated with 'Multi-Picture Object' by CIPA.

MPO is a standard proposed by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association, 2009) that can store 2 or more primary images in one container file. This file format is mostly associated with 3D image viewing. 

Windows applications that use the WIC (Windows Imaging Component) do not have the ability to access or display pictures beyond the first one in the series. However, a number of third party utilities exist that have the capability of splitting MPO files into standard JPG's.
