JPEG - An acronym for Joint Photographic Experts Group that describes an image file format standard in which the size of the file is reduced by compressing it. JPEG, with its 16.7 million colors, is well suited to compressing photographic images. A "JPEG" image file name carries the extension "jpg" - e.g. "portrait.jpg" Many people refer to an image in JPEG format as a "JPEG," pronounced "jay-peg".) Most digital cameras save images as JPEG files, and some high-end cameras can be set to record both JPEG and RAW image files at the same time.
Note: When working on an image in an image-editing program, you can avoid data loss due to compression when saving and re-saving the file by first saving the .jpg image as a .TIFF image, which is not compressed when saved.
