pdf The .pdf file format extension was developed by Adobe systems in 1993 as a means of presenting documents in a consistent manner across different platforms, hardware, operating systems, and applications. The format was not released as an open source document format until 2008, though minimal proprietary technologies still controlled by Adobe Systems exist in the format. Every .pdf document carries with it the necessary meta information required to properly reconstruct the text, fonts, and graphics used to produce the document. This ensures that documents will be viewed in exactly the same way the author intended regardless of the device used to open the document. From conception to date, Adobe Systems has continued to support the format adding features with every iteration of the standard including hardened algorithms for document encryption and privacy. Today, many freely available readers exist allowing you to open and view .pdf documents and create or convert other file formats such as .jpeg and .doc into .pdf documents.
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.
