How To Open A JPEG File

JPEG or JPG file extensions are a standard type of digital image file. JPEGs are compressed to save space on a hard drive but still maintain a high visual quality.

If you need to open a JPEG or JPG file, most computers are equipped with a basic picture viewer, such as Windows Photo Viewer. HowSpot.com recommends using GIMP because it provides a better quality viewing experience. To open your JPEG or JPG file with GIMP, follow the instructions below.


  • 1

    Download and install GIMP.

  • 2

    Locate the JPEG or JPG image file you’d like to open. It will have either extension .jpeg or .jpg.

  • 3

    Right-click on the JPEG file, click Open With, and select GIMP to open your file.
