JPG File Type


The JPG file extension, also known as JPEG image, is a popular format for storing digital images. This file format is common because it takes up less space than other formats like TIFF and BMP. The JPEG image is created by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) which was established in 1986. They are responsible for developing the JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF). The JFIF was then used to create a Joint Photographic Experts Group standard in 1992 that defines the compression method for this file format.

ICON File Type


An Icon file is an extension created by the Windows operating system to create shortcuts of various types. These Icons can be used as icons of any website, folder, application or anything else. ICON files are mostly used on Microsoft Windows operating systems. They are named with a .icn extension and not .icon extension because of the limitations on the size of the icon for that specific platform. As ICON files are just shortcuts, they cannot contain any images or other objects that would only take up space in a regular shortcut file.
