File extension .jpg/.jpeg
Internet media type image/jpeg
Description: JPG file extension is the most commonly used and recognizable. It was first released in 1992. Based on the discrete cosine transform (DCT), JPG allows you to save images of sufficient quality, while consuming the minimum amount of space. This is primarily important for storing digital photos in the Internet environment.
Technical Details: The main feature of JPG is controlling the loss of quality during compression. Any user or editor is able to control the compression, in contrast to .png. It's very simple: with .jpg you choose how much to cut the quality of the image and thereby determine the size of the final file. The worse the quality, the smaller the size. This saves a tremendous amount of disk space.
