There is no difference between the .jpg and .jpeg filename extensions. The two terms have the same meaning and are interchangeable. The reason for the different file extensions dates back to the early versions of Windows. The original file extension was .jpeg; however in Windows all files required a three letter file extension. So, the file extension was shortened to .jpg. Now, the most commonly accepted and used form is the ‘.jpg’, as many users were Windows users. Imaging applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, save all JPEG files with a ".jpg" extension on both Mac and Windows, in an attempt to avoid confusion.
