Technical details of OPF file format
The .opf file extension can be categorized into various types of file. It can be a file formatted with the standard set by Open Packaging. The OPFs are more than e-book files as they mostly contain information about the e-book from the title to the writer as well as other meta information about it. This is why these files can be opened using Adobe Reading software. Also, it is used for files created by the FlipAlbum program. This program is used to create digital photo albums and these .opf files refer to the photo album created using the software. The OPF files contain configurations of the album; its structure and image file references. These files can be shared with other people as well. The OPF files are also associated with FlipBook. An OPF file can be edited with any text editor (e.g. Notepad or Notepad++) because they can be formatted using the XML format.
