What is JPEG?

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) or JPG is a digital image format introduced in 1992 that relies on the Discrete Cosine Transform technique, a widely used lossy compression format for digital images. JPEG images have a .jpeg or .jpg extension.

The advantages of using JPEG in a digital image format are:

1. Portability

The JPEG files are highly compressible. The small file size means that JPEG images can easily be uploaded on web pages.

2. Compatibility

JPEG images are compatible with almost all devices and software, which means that there is no need to change the format for usage.
