How to Convert PNG to JPG without Losing Quality

PNG and JPG files are the most used image file formats. Both files formats have their own purpose. For instance, .png files are good for images that are used on the websites. This file format has lossless compression whereas .jpg file format has lossy compression. Since these two formats have differences, it is often necessary to turn PNG to JPG or vice versa.

 

Lossless or lossy compression?

PNG files are in nature lossless which means the quality of the image stays almost unalterable when the file is compressed. JPG files are of lossy compression- in other words, when you compress a JPG file it loses quality which cannot be restored.
