JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) - Definition

JPEG is an abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group, an alliance committee who issued the standard in 1992. More commonly, JPEG is used to mean any image convertible into electronic data by use of the method ("JFIF," or JPEG File Interchange Format) devised by that group. JPEG itself specifies both the codec, which defines how an image is compressed into a stream of bytes and decompressed back into an image, and the file format used to contain that stream. The JPEG format is especially well-suited to the conversion of full-color photographic images into small, transmittable electronic files.
