    Hi Monika Thakur,

    Jpg is a image file which can be open in windows or any operating system, easly. wereas pdf file will open only in adobe reader software, for which you need to have Adobe reader software. A pdf file can contain both text and images, wereas jpg is purely image file.

    I hope you got it.

    Hi Monika,

    PDF file and JPEG are entirely differnt types of files. PDF means "Portable Document Format" and JPEG means "Joint Picture Experts Group". if you want to open a pdf file, you should install " Acrobat Reader" software for it. But if you want to open a jpeg file there is no need to install any such software, operating system is enough to open the specific file.

    You can convert jpeg file to pdf file and vice versa using certain file converter softwares. sometimes it may be useful to reduce the file size.

    The PDF file is the text file format which is executed in the adobe reader and it is used mainly on the internet and executed when making a Ebook while the JPEG is the image file that is used for the uploading the images and pictures in the social networking websites and one of the most important image file format.

    Both are different file formats. A PDF (Portable document file) file format is invented by Adobe corporation which can have image , video and text. you can add digital signature in it instead of hand written signature.

    JPEG(Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a common file format for creating the image files. We can convert a JPEG file to PDF file and vise vera.

    PDF is a text file.
    JPEG is a image file.

    Both are very important because they are now used on internet on regular basis.

    You can read PDF by Adobe reader.
    You can view JPEG image in many softwares such as Picasa etc.

    Best of luck
