what does jpg mean?

whatdoesjpgmean

JPG - (or JPEG) stands for Joint Photographic Group and is a raster format often used for photographs on the web. JPEG files are web friendly because the files are typically smaller. The downside to JPEGs is that the original quality of the image is decreased as it discards digital information through compression to keep the image size small. This can become problematic when using JPGs for high quality printing. What it means is the image will not look as sharp and is less defined. If using JPEG files for print, it’s important to pay attention to the resolution and file size for the file to print well. Read more here about “images – what is dpi, ppi & resolution”. A JPEG cannot contain a transparent background so is always rectangular or square in shape with a solid background.
