All about JPG files

The jpg, or JPEG, file format is used for images. It is often used for digital photos, and for images displayed on the internet. It is a common format that can be opened by most computers, tablets, mobile phones, and other devices.

Saving an image as a jpg compresses the image, making it a smaller file. This means that jpg images will download faster, and take up less memory on your computer, than an uncompressed file. However, some of the image quality is lost when the file is compressed. When saving a jpg, you often can choose how much compression you want. High compression means a small file but poor image quality, while low compression gives a better quality image, but a larger file. You can spot a jpg by the .jpg or .jpeg extension at the end of the filename.
