JPG is a file extension related to a bitmap image format. Its source can either be digital cameras, camera enabled phones and other devices that captures and display photographs supported by bitmap images. The resulting JPG image can be displayed on the web or other digital resources. It's not recommended to edit and resave directly a JPG file, since it has less detail then a BMP image for example. This is because JPG is a compressed version of other image formats, whose advantages include faster loading time especially on websites, however usually in exchange of a lower resolution image. JPG is one of the most common image formats and can be opened by a variety of computer applications, including Windows Paint, Adobe Photoshop and Corel Draw.

Incorrect associations are the cause of many file extension errors. Scan your system to prevent, identify and repair JPG file extension association errors.
