Overview
Files stored in this format are small in size that is why they can be uploaded and downloaded with ease. It takes less time over the internet to upload and download due to smaller size which results in saving of bandwidth. This extension is compressed using a lossy algorithm that is why there can be a reduction in the quality of the photograph. It has the ability to compress the file to one-tenth of its original size. It is widely used in emails and also when images are to be posted on websites. Digital Cameras and other photographic image capture devices widely use this JPG format. The paintings and photos of realistic scenes that have smooth variations of colour can be best illustrated by this format.
Technical description
A technique used in JPEG format to compress files is lossy compression which is based on DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) as it is the most practical Mathematical operation. The DCT actually converts each frame of the video from the spatial domain to a frequency/transform domain. It discards the information of high frequency that has sharp transitions in intensity as well as in colour hue. Furthermore, this standard defines a codec which tells how an image can be encoded into a stream of bytes and decoded back into an image. The files can be compressed in the ratio of 100:1 but that would result in the poor quality of an image. Therefore, to retain the quality of a photo, a file should be compressed till 20:1 ratio not more than that.

Overview
An EPS file format is used for vector images in which points on a Cartesian plane are joined by lines and curves to form different shapes especially polygons. The added advantage to vector graphics is that they can be scaled up and down to any resolution. Emblems, figures, drawings, logos and other artworks can be saved using this format. Furthermore, it may have 2-dimensional vector graphics, text and bitmap images. As well as, a low-resolution image preview within the text document can be sent or received by an individual in it. One can also transfer the image between two or more operating systems, which makes it compatible format and that is why it is widely used by publishers. It is a standard format for storing both images and drawings within a postscript document.
Technical description
An EPS file has a Bounding Box DSC comment(the smallest enclosing box for a point set in infinite dimensions) which describes the rectangle that contains an image. This information can be used by the applications to configure or layout the page, even though they are not capable of directly rendering the Postscript inside. Resizing, editing and manipulation of the image can be done using different software like Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator and there will be no effect on the quality. There are at least two necessary document structuring conventions(DSC) header comments and this adapts to Version 3.0 as well as to bounding box comment( it tells about the size of an image). There can be optional DSC comments. For instance, the %%Begin(End)Preview and it denotes the bitmap preview section.
