You need to be able to open and print your original document in order to create a JPG image. For example, to create a JPG from a Word document, you would need to have Microsoft Word, or another application that can open and print Word documents, installed on your computer.

JPG or JPEG?

JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, which is the name of the committee that created the image file format. Both JPG and JPEG can be used as file extensions for this image type. The JPG file extension was originally used in older operating systems that could only support three-letter file extensions.
