JPEG is a file extension that stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. The ISO standard was originally released back in 1992. It is a bitmap compression format, most commonly used for lossy compression, with compression ratios ranging from 10:1 to 20:1.
There are actually no differences between the JPG and JPEG formats. The only difference is the number of characters used. JPG only exists because in earlier versions of Windows (MS-DOS 8.3 and FAT-16 file systems) they required a three letter extension for the file names. So .jpeg was shortened to .jpg. While Windows and or DOS had this limitation, UNIX did not and so UNIX and MAC users continued to use the .jpeg extension. Newer versions of Windows of course now accept more characters in their file extension.
