JPEG file format

JPEG is a commonly used image file format that uses compression to reduce the file size while maintaining good image quality. JPEG files are widely supported and easy to share, but they lose some detail and quality in the compression process. Photographers often use JPEG files for everyday snapshots and quick sharing, but use raw files for more important images.
