Description
JPG – is a popular graphic format characterized by a high image compression rate, which leads to a decrease in image quality. It uses the technology of encoding smooth color renditions, providing the ability to frequently reduce the amount of data during the image's recording. Because of the small size, it is requested by the owners of websites, allowing you to save the traffic effectively. It is also frequently used in memory cards of digital video cameras. The JPG algorithm is optimally suitable for compressing photographs and pictures in which realistic scenes with little contrast of colors are present. It is not recommended to use this format for compression of drawings and various kinds of graphics. A strong contrast between several near located pixels provokes the appearance of visible artifacts.
Technical details
The procedure for compressing the digital images in JPG format is carried out in several stages. First, the photo is transformed into a color space YCbCr, and then it is divided into squares to determine the upper range of the color spectrum. Finally, the colors and brightness are coded. JPEG uses a "lossy" compression system and discrete cosine transform technology. The format acts simultaneously as the standard of ISO and the International Telecommunication Union. The file compression ratio is in the range from 10:1 to 100:1. In this case, the reduction in image quality can vary from insignificant to substantial.

Description

RAR is a proprietary archive file format that helps you archive and store important files as a group. What this means is that you can compress and distribute large files as a single file provided you converted them to the RAR file format.

RAR file format has many characteristics and benefits that include:

  1. 1. RAR makes smaller archives in the shortest time possible.
  2. 2. RAR files can be split into several files to allow the users to either download them separately or as a single file.

How to create and how to open an RAR file

Do you want to create a RAR file? Some several applications and programs allow you to do that. Out of the list of options, the two most outstanding are WinRAR and 7-Zip. You only need to select the folder you want to convert and add it to the archive.

If you want to open a RAR file, you can do that with several devices and programs, such as Windows Phone, Android smartphone, iOS devices, and Windows. To open your RAR file with Windows, simply install the RAR file software. Then, right-click the RAR file you want to extract, select the software you installed as the program you want to use for the extraction, and click on Extract Files. You can then select the folder where you want to store the extracted file(s) before clicking on OK.

Which other formats RAR can be converted into and why

RAR files aren’t common as ZIP files. So, you have to use commercial software to open the files. Also, the encryption algorithm on RAR files isn’t as secure as those of ZIP files.

To that end, here are some of the other formats and alternatives that can be used to open RAR files:

  1. 1. TAR
  2. 2. ZIP
  3. 3. 7Z

RAR files are usually converted into ZIP ones and vice versa. The latter format takes less time to get compressed so it is more convenient to work with if a user needs to deal with numerous archives.
