JPEG
Last modified: Monday, May 05, 2003 

Short for Joint Photographic Experts Group, and pronounced jay-peg. JPEG is a lossy compression technique for color images. Although it can reduce files sizes to about 5% of their normal size, some detail is lost in the compression.

Also see JPG vs. GIF vs. PNG in the Did You Know . . . ? section of Webopedia.
