Both PNG and JPG (JPEG) are very popular image formats. Which one is best depends on your goals. PNG uses lossless compression, so it retains the best picture quality. JPG uses lossy compression and high compression ratios that significantly reduce the size of image files while preserving good picture quality. This compression is why you might want a PNG to JPG converter as it will let you free up hard disk space.
There’s no need use complex graphics software if you have Movavi Converter!
