ico The .ICO filename extension refers to the ICON image file format originally developed by Microsoft. The extension is used to represent computer icon images of varying sizes designed for the operating system Microsoft Windows. Its use today has extended to developing icons for programs designed using the Microsoft developer's suite Visual Studio and other applications. Similar to other device independent bitmap file formats, the ICON file format is also in the raster graphics class of image formats where each individual pixel is part of an orthogonal dot matrix data structure with support for a limited palette of color information. As a resource file, the .ico file format has its strength in contextual use. This allows for multiple icon images of different color depth or size to be stored within the resource file and used when appropriate.
jpeg JPEG is abbreviated as the Joint Photographics Experts Group. It is a file extension that uses irreversible compression technology which helps in reducing the data size for storing data easier and advocates the seamless handling and transmission of content. A JPEG most commonly aids in storing digital images via "lossy compression" and includes images rendered by means of digital photography. Lossy compression does not let users restore the image file to its original quality after compression, once sized down. Some loss of the data stored in the image file occurs during the compression process. In simpler terms, when an image gets compressed, there's a reduction in its quality, thereby losing some of the graphical/visual data information; data reduction generates lower file sizes.
