DNG (Digital Native) is a lossless raw image file format developed by Adobe Systems in 2004 for digital photography. Generally, DNG is structurally similar to TIFF format and is a royalty-free format. This means that anyone can use DNG format as per Adobe’s published license. Also, DNG uses lossless data compression and is compatible with all Adobe products.
JPG, sometimes called JPEG, is a standard image format developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPG uses a high degree of lossy compression to give it a small file size while sacrificing the overall image quality. It can achieve up to an impressive 10:1 compression algorithm. Today, it’s the most widely used image format, thanks to its seamless compatibility with the World Wide Web and most image viewing and editing apps.
