Is there a difference between JPG and JPEG?

“JPG” and “JPEG” are two acronyms for the same image format. These are two equivalent file extensions, both referring to the same picture format Digital Cameras. JPEG stands for “Joint Photographic Experts Group”, which is a group of technologies that have created the JPEG image format widely used in digital cameras, social media, and on the web.

The JPEG format dates back to 1992. At that time, most personal computers in the world ran the Microsoft MS-DOS operating system, which only supported a three-character file extension. As a result, JPEG files acquired the “JPG” extension on MS-DOS and early Windows platforms. Meanwhile, the Apple Macintosh platform (used by a small number of computer owners) has no such restriction, so JPEG files often carry the .JPEG file extension there.

Today, both Windows and macOS can handle the .JPEG file extension fully, and most applications understand and open both .JPG and .JPEG files equally. So if you have the file with the correct extension in the viewer or image editor, you don’t need to make any changes.

Is it possible to convert JPEG to JPG?

Since JPEG and JPG files have the exact same image format, no conversion is needed to turn a JPG file into a JPEG or vice versa.

Instead, all you need to do is rename the image file and change the file extension. For example, if you have a file named “IMAGE.JPEG” and you want “IMAGE.JPG”, use the rename feature in your operating system to edit the filename “IMAGE.JPEG” and delete the “IMAGE.JPEG” file name. E” from the extension “JPEG”. You can also do the same in reverse, changing “JPG” to “JPEG”.

If you want to rename a large number of JPEG or JPG files, you can automate the process fairly easily on both Windows (by selecting multiple files and choosing “Rename” in the context menu) and Mac (using “Rename item” in the menu bar).
