JPEG files and JPG files both refer to the same image format. In the past, file extensions for Microsoft Windows were limited to a maximum of three characters, so JPEG was shortened to JPG. Today, JPEG and JPG files are generally interchangeable. However, some image programs don’t recognize the JPEG extension. In that case, you need to convert JPEG to JPG. Our easy online tools can take care of everything in seconds, and it’s very easy to use.
How To Convert JPEG to JPG
There are several different ways to convert JPEG to JPG. The best option depends on how many photos you need to convert and how much time you have.
- How To Manually Change JPEG to JPG
One way to convert a JPEG file to JPG format is to change the file extension by hand. To do this in File Explorer on Windows 10, you can right-click a file and select Rename. Then manually name the file with a .jpg extension instead of .jpeg. If you can’t see the current file extension, you may need to go to View > Show/Hide and enable the box for “File name extensions.”
- How To Save JPEG to JPG
You can also use a basic image editor app such as Microsoft Paint or Photos to save a JPEG file as JPG. In Paint, look for this option in File > Save As > Save As JPEG picture. This will give the image a .jpg extension.
