JPEG vs TIFF

   
JPEG/JPG is the standard file format of most of consumer-quality digital cameras and is supported by most imaging software. JPEG offers efficient file sizes for uploading/posting on websites or emailing as attachments.

JPEG uses lossy compression, meaning some image data is lost when the file is compressed and then uncompressed. The amount of compression can vary, with more compression meaning more data loss but resulting in a smaller file. JPEG, like TIFF, is a good bet for a long term archival format.

Uncompressed (lossless) TIFF is the standard for most commercial digital photo printing needs. TIFF is an excellent choice for archiving images when file size is not a consideration as uncompressed TIFF files are larger than JPEGs.
