JPEG is the abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group. It is the original name of the committee that developed the standard. It is a colour image compression technique. It can reduce the size of the file by about 5% of its original size.

JPEG works only in case of static images. It works well in case of photographs, naturalistic artwork and similar material but not well on text, cartoons and line drawings. To handle motion images there is another standard called MPEG.

It is one of two sub-groups of ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1, Subcommittee 29, Working Group 1 (ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 1) - titled as Coding of still pictures.[1][2][3] The group was organized in 1986,[4] issuing the first JPEG standard in 1992, which was approved in September 1992 as ITU-T Recommendation T.81[5] and in 1994 as ISO/IEC 10918-1.
