JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)


JPEG, an acronym for Joint Photographic Experts Group, refers to a method of lossy compression for digital images.

It's a commonly used format for photographic image files due to its balance between image quality and file size.

In printing, the quality of a JPEG image can significantly affect the final product, particularly if the image needs to be enlarged, as the format might compromise the image’s clarity and sharpness.
