This week’s photography word is:
JPEG – Joint Photographic Experts Group is the most commonly used image format. It is universally compatible with internet browsers, viewers, and image editing software. JPEG allows images to be compressed by 10 to 20 percent with very little loss of image quality.
On a side note, when photographing with a DSLR camera the images viewed on the camera’s LCD is a JPEG image, even if shooting in RAW.
