This File type categories under Zip, Text, Binary and XML, however, the format of this file format has not been determined yet. You can open JPG files in Microsoft Windows Photos program.
No technology existed in the early 1980s to allow users to easily compress and share digital images. In 1982, the JPEG working group began to design a compression standard that could be used to reduce the size of d'files, making them easier to share, while maintaining their quality as much as possible.
The JPEG file format was created by the working group in 1992. The JPEG files, which are most often saved at the apos; extension .jpg or .jPEG, are images created at the apos; help d' a compression algorithm with loss, which actually destroys some data contained in the original image file. This loss of data is most often invisible to the human eye. Because the JPEG standard continues to allow users to produce high-quality, shareable images, and because it is so integrated into the technologies used to create and share images, it is still the most widely used compression standard.
