How to Convert Pictures to JPG

Many websites and apps won’t allow you to upload a photo unless it ends in .JPG (also known as a JPEG).

If your photos end in .PNG, .GIF, .TIFF, or most other file extension, this can be frustrating.

Windows computers have a built-in tool called Paint that can
help to convert images from other formats to JPG for free.



     Step 1. Open the image with Paint on your Windows computer.

     Step 2. Navigate to “File” > “Save as” > “JPEG picture”.

     Step 3. Name the JPG picture and choose a location to save it, then click the “Save” button to finish the conversion.


Mac computers have a built-in tool called Preview that can help to convert images to JPG.

        The “Export As” feature allows you to convert documents to different formats including JPG.

         Step 1. Right-click on any image you want to convert and choose “Open with” > “Preview”.

         Step 2. Go to “File” > “Export”. An “Export As” dialog will be opened. Choose “JPEG” on the “Format” option.

                                          Next, set the output image quality and select a destination to store the output JPG image,

                                          then click the “Save” button. Now your PNG photo has been converted to a JPG and saved

                                          at the location you just choose.
