JPG and PNG are two of the many file formats that are available. The difference between the two formats is the way they are compressed. JPG uses what is called a lossy compression, which will lose some of the information. It does this to reduce the size of the file. PNG is lossless, which means it does not lose any information. It will keep all the information of the file. Another difference between them is the quality of the file. The quality of a PNG image will not change, but file size will be larger. With JPG files, they will be smaller but the quality of the file will not be as good as JPG.

If you love anything that is related to photos, there is a very big possibility that you are familiar with JPG and PNG. These are known to be types of image files that you may save. JPG is known to come with a lossy compression that will remove some of the components of the image so that the file size can become smaller.

When you use PNG, you can count on the quality of the image to remain the same even after you save it, but you need to have enough space on your gadget because the file size is bound to be larger. The quality of PNG is definitely better, but if you want more space to hold your images, the JPG can already be your choice.
