Acronym for Joint Photographic Experts Group that describes a digital image file format standard in which the size of the file is reduced by compression. A JPEG image file name carries the extension "jpg". JPEG compression is "loosy", meaning it looses some image information as opposed to other formats like TIFF. A "high quality" JPEG file looses less than a "low quality" JPEG file.
