What is a jpeg file and how do I open a jpeg file?

JPEG files are compressed graphics standardized by the Joint Photographic Experts Group. They support up to 24-bit colour, which makes JPEG a good format for storing digital photos. JPEG files are lossy compressed which may reduce image quality if high amounts of compression are used. JPEG images are used for web graphics and for storing photos taken with digital cameras. They are usually saved with a JPEG extension. This means users can conveniently share their digital photos and favorite images by storing it in the .jpeg format and transmitting it via the Internet or through email. Because of its small size, large collections of these JPEG images can be stored in external data storage devices and optical media. Several third party applications are integrated with a set of features for editing the JPEG images. The JPEG standard specifies the codec, which defines how an image is compressed into a stream of bytes and decompressed back into an image, but not the file format used to contain that stream.
