This simple and easy to use JPG converter is the tool that you may need daily. Very often when using laptops and computers, we come across images that we want to send to other people. These images may be part of a document or saved as files in different formats. Mobile phones and tablets with cameras have seen an explosion of images being exchanged between people and getting posted on various social media sites.

Since mobile phones added cameras to their devices, taking pictures has become a craze among mobile phone users. When mobile phones packed two cameras one on the front and the other one on the back, taking 'selfies' has become an obsession. Taking selfies also means sending them to friends and family and posting them on social media. Mobile phones store pictures in JPG format which take less space and are faster to transfer when sending the images to any chat or email application. Today millions of images are exchanged on the internet, and the standard used for images is JPG.

Images took up a lot of space when saved on any device and transferring them to another device via a network was extremely time-consuming and frustrating. It led to the development of JPG, an abbreviation of “Joint Photographic Experts Group”. This group developed a compression standard for compressing images which are widely used and supported on all modern day web browsers. JPG made it much easier and faster to transfer image files over a network, and the images consumed less space on devices. News and magazines reporters could with JPG send their photographic images much faster to the publishers. Two other compression standards in use for compressing images are GIF and PNG.
