What is JPG?
The JPG file format (used interchangeably with JPEG) is a widely used image format used in most digital cameras. JPEG that stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, who created the standard. What JPEG defines is how the image is compressed into a stream of bytes and how to decompress back into an image, but does not specify the way the data is saved. JPG uses lossy compression, meaning that you will loose data from the original image. This does not mean that the quality of the image will degrade significatively. On the contrary, you can use a compression rate of 10:1 without loosing significant details. The file extension can be either .jpg or .jpeg.
What is PNG?
PNG is a raster-graphics file format that uses lossless data compression (that is to say that all the information is restored when the file is decompressed). PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics, and was developed as an improved replacement for GIF due to legal considerations. The file extension is .png.
One of the advantages of using PNG is that PNG supports transparency and data is compressed using the lossless compression algorithm LZW.
Why not JPG?
