What is PNG to JPG Converter?
PNG to JPG Converter is a free and online web tool that converts PNG image file format to JPG image file format.
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.
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.
JPG saves images with a good compression rate without loosing significant details. JPEG format works at its best on images with smooth variations of tones and colors. However, JPG/JPEG is not well suited for line drawings or images that contain text.Also be careful in using high compression rates because the image can degrade significatively.
Use JPG image files if you want to upload images to the web. This will help to faster loading times and less time waiting until websites load.
Why not PNG?
