Compressed graphic format standardized by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG); supports up to 24-bit color, which makes JPEG a good format for storing digital photos; compressed using lossy compression, which may noticeably reduce the image quality if high amounts of compression are used.JPEG images are commonly used for Web graphics and for storing photos taken with digital cameras. They are usually saved with a .JPG extension.
The JPEG file type is primarily associated with 'JPEG/JIFF Image'. A lossy bitmap image format used by digital cameras and to display photographs on the Web (along with many other like uses). If you plan to edit a JPEG file save it first as a BMP or other lossless bitmap format. Edit that and then use SaveAs to resave as a JPEG file. If you edit and reedit a JPEG file you will suffer a compression loss on each read/save operation. The Macintosh type is: JPEG.
