IMG to JPEG Conversion
There are several variations of the IMG format. It is not a universal format and depends on the software or device that created it. Originally the IMG format was designed for the GEM Paint Program. IMG can be a CD or a DVD mage file similar to an ISO file; it can be an archival format for floppy disks; an image generated by MAC, etc. Its characteristics vary as well, and depending on the format style it supports from 1 up to 24 bits per pixel. Since this image format is very diverse compatibility is the main issue involved. Converting IMG to JPEG is one of the ways to make this format more widely recognized and be suitable for sharing in the web. No matter that JPEG offers lossy compression method meaning that the quality loss is inevitable this will not be so obvious to a regular user. Plus, there are more advantages than disadvantages of IMG to JPEG conversion.

With the growing number of digital technologies the image size grows as well. If high pixel resolution used to mean that the image was taken with a professional camera, now even simple digital equipment makes it possible to create very high quality images of millions of pixels. This is a real advantage for professional photographers for who high quality photos are a must. But handling these images on a daily basis becomes more difficult. Large image size prevents you from sharing the photos with friends – publishing them in social networks or sending them via email. It takes long to open large images, to download them, plus they take up a lot of Internet traffic. So, large images are not always that good.
