Overview - What Is JPEG

JPEG is a commonly used method of compression for photographic images. The degree of compression can be adjusted, allowing a selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality. JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality. JPEG/Exif is the most common image format used by digital cameras and other photographic image capture devices. Along with JPEG/JFIF, it is the most common format for storing and transmitting photographic images on the World Wide Web. These format variations are often not distinguished and are simply called JPEG.

The file format known as "JPEG Interchange Format" (JIF) is specified in Annex B of the standard. But this "pure" file format is rarely used, because of the difficulty of programming encoders and decoders. It implements all aspects of the standard and because of certain shortcomings of the standard.

Image files that use JPEG compression are commonly called "JPEG photos". Most image capture devices and editing software programs that output "JPEG files" are actually creating a file in the JFIF and/or Exif format. The JFIF and Exif standards are incompatible because they each specify that their header appears first. In practice, most JPEG files in Exif format contain a small JFIF header that precedes the Exif header.
