What is JPEG Compression?

JPEG Compression is an algorithm that was developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (or simply as JPEG).

This algorithm is used to reduce the size of the image files.

But what happens when we compress images?

When we compress jpeg files, it reduces the size of the file by eliminating some of the image’s data which is not noticeable.

This is why JPEG Compression is called a lossy compression because some of the data of the image file gets lost during compression.

Lossy compression are irreversible, that is once the data gets lost, it is not possible to get it back.

Is JPEG lossy or lossless?

JPEG is lossy, that means if we compress JPEG, the size of the image gets smaller but some of the data gets lost.

But no need to worry these lost data is un-noticeable and do not affect the quality of the picture.

Both .jpeg and .jpg are used interchangeably.
