What is a wmf file?

WMF or Windows Metafile, is a Microsoft Windows image file format. Files with the WMF extension contain a group of file commands, called WMF records, that together produce an image on screen, readable by the Microsoft Graphic Display Interface (GDI). WMFs consist of a header, which describes the records it contains, as well as the image size and properties. Each WMF record describes some aspect of the image.

Windows Metafiles were originally developed in the 1990s, introduced with Microsoft 2.0 and intended for 16-Bit operating systems.  The WMF format contains both vector and bitmap images. Applications that recognize clipboard format will be able to read WMF files copied and pasted into the application. WMFs are portable and are utilized by a number of different programs.  Both Microsoft Word (DOC and DOCX) and PowerPoint use WMFs.
