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

JPG files are classified as raster image files, and the .jpg file format is implemented for storing digital photos and images with support for 24-bit color. This makes the JPG file format a default standard for digital camera manufacturers and professional photographers. Because of the compression specifications integrated into the image content of these JPG files, its size is significantly reduced for optimal portability. This means users can conveniently share their digital photos and favorite images by storing it in the .jpg format and transmitting it via the Internet or through email. Because of its small size, large collections of these JPG images can be stored in external data storage devices and optical media. Many third party applications are integrated with a set of features for editing these JPG images.
