Frequently Asked Questions

PNG and JPG are image file formats with different compression processes. PNG files retain image quality with larger file sizes, while JPG has some quality loss but a much smaller versatile file size. JPG is the default file format for storing images, making it ideal for real-world photos, such as pictures of people or nature. Meanwhile, PNG supports transparent backgrounds, unlike JPG. They work best for drawings and illustrations with heavy lines and text.

Both file formats have their advantages and disadvantages — which format to use depends upon the kind of image you have and how you plan to use it. JPG photos take up less storage space, so you can save many pictures on your device or drive. They’re also helpful for web images, as the smaller size lets pages load faster for users.

PNG format is apt if you’re planning to edit or repurpose your image, as it supports background transparency. PNG also uses lossless compression — images maintain their quality no matter how often you save, open, or resize them.

Yes, JPG and JPEG are the same image file formats. The only difference between the two is the characters used. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group - the committee that proposed the JPEG image file format. JPEG was shortened to JPG because earlier versions of Windows required a three-character file extension name. These days both Windows and Mac systems accept longer file extensions, which is why you’ll see both JPG and JPEG formats in computers, smartphones, social media, and on the web.
