JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)

The JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) file format is a standard for compressing and storing digital images. JPEG files are commonly used for storing and sharing photos on the web and are also used by digital cameras to store images.

JPEG compression uses a lossy compression algorithm, which means that some of the image data is lost when the file is compressed. This loss of data can result in artifacts (visible defects) in the image. However, JPEG compression can achieve very high levels of compression, which can make it an ideal format for storing and sharing images.

What is JPEG and its requirement?

JPEG is a lossy compression method for digital images, particularly for those images produced by digital photography. The degree of compression can be adjusted, allowing a selectable tradeoff between size and image quality. JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality.

JPEG compression is used in a number of image file formats. JPEG/JFIF is the most common format, and is the format used by most digital cameras. These format variations are commonly referred to as "JPEG file Interchange Format" and "Exchangeable image file format".

The compression method is usually lossy, meaning that some original image information is lost and cannot be restored, possibly affecting image quality. There is also a lossless JPEG format, which does not compress as much but does not lose any information. What is JPEG in CGMM? JPEG is a lossy compression algorithm for digital images. It is named after the Joint Photographic Experts Group, the organization that developed the standard. The algorithm is optimized for compressing photographic images.

Who developed JPEG?

The Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) was developed in 1992 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to provide a standardized lossy compression method for digital images. JPEG uses a compression algorithm that is optimized for photographic images. The compression method is based on the discrete cosine transform (DCT), which is widely used in image compression standards such as the ISO/IEC 10918 standard (JPEG).

The JPEG standard was developed by a team of experts from the ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC1) on Information Technology. The team included representatives from a number of companies, including:

* Adobe Systems
* C-Cube Microsystems
* Eastman Kodak
* Hewlett-Packard
* Mitsubishi Electric
* Sony

What is JPEG best used for?

JPEG is best used for compressing photographic images. It uses lossy compression, which means that some of the image data is lost when the file is compressed. However, the data that is lost is typically not noticed by the human eye, so JPEG is still considered to be a high-quality format. What was JPEG designed for? JPEG was designed to compress images for storage and transmission. It is a standard format for storing and transmitting digital images.
