File Extension JPG

Information about JPG files and how to open them

Graphics and images come in all shapes and file extensions. One of the most common file extensions that you will encounter will be JPG. JPG indicates a JPEG file, as this is one of the best image file formats used in a number of media applications.

This file format has crisp digital images along with vibrant colors, as it supports the 24-bit "True Color" depth resolution. Digital cameras will automatically save photos under the JPG file extension whenever you download the images to your computer. You will also notice that many web graphics use the JPEG file format to allow for the true colors of the image to stand out on your monitor.

The JPG files are easy to add to documents and web applications when people need a graphic to break up large amounts of text or give illustrations to detailed information. Be aware that file size can slightly decrease when using this image format. Yet you should still consider using this image format over others because of the ease of use and greater image quality. Most software applications are compatible with the JPEG file format when you are looking to add images to documents and presentations. This eliminates the need to save the graphic under different image file formats to use with other programs.
