Difference between JPEG and SVG

File SystemSVGWeb Development

JPEG and SVG both are a type of image format to store images. JPEG is a raster image format and uses lossy compression algorithm and image may lost some of its data whereas SVG is a text based image format and uses mathematical structures to represent a image and is highly scalable. JPEG images are used in photography applications and SVG is used when high resolution images are required.

Following are the important differences between JPEG and SVG.
