ExtensionSmallImg What is .jpg file?

The JPEG file extension is used interchangeably with JPG. JPG files have 2 sub-formats, JPG/Exif (used in digital cameras and photographic equipment), and JPG/JFIF (used on the World Wide Web). JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. It is a compressed graphic format that supports up to 24-bit color, which makes JPG a worthy format for storing digital photos. But, JPEG uses a lossy compression, which might prominently reduce the image quality. JPG images are commonly used for Web graphics and for storing photos taken with digital cameras. JPG is a cross platform format, which means a file will look same on both a Mac and Mac PC. To edit a JPG file, it should first be saved as a lossless bitmap format. The image can then be edited and it should again be saved as a JPEG file. Editing / Re-editing a JPG file undergoes a compression loss on each read/save operation.
