Why convert .JPG files to .PDF files

A JPG file is a raster image file widely used across digital photography. JPG files are ideal for uploading and sharing online because of their small size and can be used and read by pretty much any program across computers and mobile devices. It’s the most widely used image compression format in the world and the default format for a lot of digital cameras and smartphone cameras. This is generally because they are very compressed without losing a huge amount of data. If you interact with any kind of digital photos, you’ll come across JPGs.

A PDF, or a Portable Document Format, is one of the most common types of digital files you will come across. It was created by Adobe and the advantage of this file is that it can be opened and viewed on nearly every application, including most web browsers. Editing a PDF is a little tricky, but there are a few programs around that will let you do that. PDF files often contain both images and text and are a good format to share documents with others as there is a high chance they will be able to view it, unlike DOC files. PDFs can also contain links and buttons and can be signed electronically, making them great for contracts.

JPG files are raster image files that tend to be associated with digital photographs. You probably associate PDF files with text documents such as essays, ebooks, menus, and so on. But the main advantage of a PDF is that it can be opened pretty much anywhere. In fact, the whole reason the PDF was created in the first place was to break down the barriers of other software and system applications. By sharing a PDF rather than a JPG, the recipient is much more likely to be able to open it. Convert JPG to PDF using WinZip to make PDF versions of your files in moments.
