JPG or JPEG (short for Joint Photographic Experts Group) is the usual and preferred format for any images produced by most smartphones and digital cameras. In addition to this, JPG is the main output filetype and most naturally-supported format for most image-editing software on both Windows and iOS devices.
JPG does lose in comparison to other file types when it comes to printing. Sending a JPEG to a printer is very simple and is usually done in a single click. The results, however, are often disappointing.
The image is usually not tailored to fit the printing medium, the quality is generally severely lacking, and - worst of all - there’s not much you can do about, especially if the image you have on hand is the highest resolution you can find.
This is where PDF files come in handy. With the “P” in “PDF” standing for “Printable,” these files are extremely predictable when it comes to printing. Sharing PDF files is also very easy. You can be sure that the file you send will be viewed just as it is, without any of its contents (images, data, or fonts) getting compromised in the process.
Since PDF is a multi-page format, you can embed as many JPG images as you want into a single scrollable document.
