Whenever you are looking to upload an image online, you are going to have a ton of options to choose from in terms of what file type you use. However, we can bet that every platform you are using will support one file type in particular: JPG.

The JPG file type is one of the most common and popular image file types out there, so we recommend using it no matter where you are using your image.

Luckily, if you are using a file type other than JPG – especially one that isn’t as common – then I recommend quickly converting your file into a JPG file with Kapwing. Here's how:

  1. Upload Image to Kapwing
  2. Export Image as JPG

Step 1: Upload Image to Kapwing

The first step in converting your image into a JPG is to bring your image to Kapwing’s editing studio, which can be used to edit both videos and pictures.

When you first go to the Studio, you will notice three options to upload your image. If you have the file already saved on your computer, use the Upload button, and if you found it somewhere online, paste the link in the URL field.

Once it's uploaded, you can edit your photo however you want. You can add text to the picture, change the dimensions of the image, add some graphics to it, and much more.

Step 2: Export Image as JPG

This step is simple: when you are ready to convert your image into a JPG, just look into the top-right corner of the screen to find Export Image. Click on this and the image will be processed in a second or so.

The default file type for Kapwing exports is JPG. When you save the new file to your computer, it may display as JPG or JPEG, but don’t worry: they're the same file type.

Download the JPG to your computer for future use.

Use the Download button to save the converted JPG picture straight to your device's files.

Converting an image into a JPG is a simple process and one that is well worth it, as it allows you to use the image in far more situations than any other type.
