What is a JPG file?

The JPG file format (sometime seen as JPEG ) was developed in the early days of the internet. In that era, file compression was very important, as internet and file transfer speeds were very slow and not always stable. We needed a reliable way to share pictures, and a good way to do that was to compress large picture files into small file sizes. The trade-off was that file compression means pictures lose a lot of quality. Thus, JPG is referred to a lossy compressed file format. At the time, JPG was a fantastic alternative to BMP. JPG is still a standard format for photos and realistic imagery, especially when one wants to avoid sending large files - such as through email or sent from a phone.

Is PNG a lossless file?

Unlike JPG, a PNG image is a lossless format, which means any compression does not affect the quality of the image. The drawback is that PNG file sizes tend to be much larger than JPG. With bandwidth being optimized and computer and mobile web devices being able to process large quantities of data, PNG has become the standard file type for web imagery, since it is ideal for graphics, text, and other art.
