What is the difference between PDF and JPG?

There is a big difference between PDF and JPG files. PDF or Portable Document Format is a format used to present different types of documents or images in a readable or viewable manner. JPG is used to compress digital images in lossy compression. A PDF file is basically a document file, while the JPG file is a graphic image file.

Does converting JPG to PDF loses image quality?

By default, the image quality is degraded when you convert a JPG image to a PDF file. However, you can use lossless compression while converting JPG images to PDF files. For this, you can follow these steps:

  • Go to Edit > Preferences and then click on Convert to PDF on Adobe Acrobat.
  • You will see BMP to PDF, PNG to PDF and TIFF to PDF conversion preferences.
  • One can select BMP, PNG and TIPP separately. Click on Edit Settings and change compression settings to JPEG2000 Quality: Lossless. With this, you will be able to convert high-quality JPG files to PDF.
