While PDF is a wonderful document format, it still has its drawbacks. For example, to view a PDF document, you need a dedicated PDF viewer like Adobe Acrobat Reader to open it. By contrast, JPG file can be opened without installing additional software as image viewer comes as standard on almost any operating systems. Aside from viewing it in an image viewer, you can also view JPG images in any web browser which has the built-in capability to display images. Though PDF can also be opened in a browser, you need to install a PDF reader plug-in first, which can slow down your browser. Also the rendering of PDF document will not happen until it is fully loaded in browsers, and JPG image can be viewed in real time while being downloaded. Another convenience of using JPG feature is that you can easily embed JPG image in your PowerPoint presentation.
