Metafile format is a Windows format used to store pictures. Rather than using
bitmaps, metafiles use operation primitives like draw and line.
Another example of a metafile is the Computer Graphics Metafile
(CGM). The CGM file format is a standard (ANSI-approved) format that
can be used on any operating system that supports it (unlike the WMF
format which is designed only for Windows). The CGM file is commonly
used in CAD and presentation graphics applications.
In general, there are tools (such as HiJaak) that will convert the
WMF, EMF, and CGM formats into other formats.
