JPEG Compression Standard
The JPEG standard specification (ISO/IEC IS 10918, or ITU-T T.81) defines a family of encoding/decoding algorithms for continuous-tone images and a data stream architecture for encapsulating and describing the compressed data. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the name of the original ISO working group interested in continuous-tone image compression. JPEG was the first international digital image compression standard for multi-level still images including both gray scale and color images.
