Difference between jpg and png

A jpg file has a white background and a png file has a transparent background. For example, if you want to put your logo on a colored background on your website, it is more convenient to use a png than a jpg.

Difference between jpg and jpeg

You may not have a jpg file but jpeg. You’re probably wondering if that letter “e” makes a difference? The simple answer is no. Both files have the same quality.

Jpg stands for Joint Photographic Group and jpeg for Joint Photographic Expert Group. This group is concerned with making compression techniques for digital images. The jpg/jpeg is an example of this.

The reason for the difference in file formats goes back to the first versions of Windows. The original file format of the Joint Photographic Expert Group was ‘jpeg’. But because Windows could only work with file formats that had a maximum of three letters, the extension was shortened to ‘jpg’. Apple computers could work with a longer file extension. Eventually, Windows also accepted files with a longer name. But because everyone was used to ‘jpg’ by now, this is still the most commonly used file format today.
