Benefits of JPEG
- PEG file format is in good use for a more extended period, and it can be transferred significantly.
- JPEG file format can be reconciled with almost any program that manages images.
- JPEG file format can be reconciled to almost all hardware tools, e.g. printers etc. So printing the digital pictures in JPEG format is very quick, transparent and simple.
