What is wmf format file?
WMF, which is short for Windows Metafile Format, is a graphics container file format.WMF contains information which describes another file. WMF is proprietary windows graphic format developed by Microsoft,which contains a series of drawing operations, including commands for drawing lines, circles, and rectangles; may also contain bitmap drawing operations; used primarily for vector images, but can also include raster graphics.WMF files are smaller than other similar metafile formats, therefore they save space. They also have no actual file size as such since the format is device independent. The Windows Metafile Format, with the file extension of ‘.wmf’, is mainly used by graphic designers, advertising designers, product designers, and website designers.
