History of the term JPEG.

The term is an acronym for “Joint Photographic Experts Group” and this created the standard for lossy image compression back in 1992. The JPEG file was largely used for digital images and photos across the internet. The degree of file compression can be adjusted, more compression gives a bad image quality but a small file size and less compression creates a high quality with a larger file size.
