About EMF and WMF

Windows metafiles store graphics. In contrast to bitmaps the Windows metafiles (EMF, WMF) contain the picture information as drawing commands and not as pixels. This allows free scaling of the graphics without losses.

An EMF is a 32 bit enhanced metafile which can be used since Windows 95 and later. Windows vector graphics format recognized by many image-editing applications; basically a 32-bit version of the original Windows Metafile Format (WMF).

A WMF is an image file format originally designed for Microsoft Windows in the 1990s. Windows Metafiles are intended to be portable between applications and is one of the first formats that allow to contain vector graphics. It acts in a similar manner to SVG files.
