CDR Image Format

CDR Converter

CDR is a file format developed in the 1980s for the CorelDRAW graphic design program. CDR is a vector image format, which means the images are made up of points and connecting lines, rather than pixels. Unlike raster images which are based on pixels, you can zoom in on vector images without affecting the image quality. CorelDRAW is particularly used by digital artists and graphic designers, and is available as either a one-time software purchase or a monthly/annual subscription.

CorelDRAW is a premium graphic design program, and some other image viewers and simple editors are not designed for vector graphics. CDR files therefore won’t open in all drawing or photo programs. However, uncompressed CDR files created in later versions of CorelDRAW can sometimes be opened by Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator or Adobe FreeHand, as well as by OpenOffice and LibreOffice. The CDR format is also compatible with other Corel products.

JPG Image Format

JPG Converter

JPG, or JPEG, is one of the most widely used digital image formats. JPG is a universal format which can be opened by almost all image-viewing or -editing programs, by web browsers, and by certain other apps, and they’re supported by most devices. JPGs are 2D pixel-based ‘raster’ images, which makes them better for photographs or scans, rather than digital illustrations which are often better as ‘vector’ images. Many cameras, smartphones, and basic photo or drawing programs will automatically save into JPG format. However, you can usually adjust settings to save into other formats if needed.

JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, which is the name of the committee that standardised the format. JPG is a ‘lossy’ format, meaning that it is compressed to save storage space and make it easier to share. This compression can affect quality, but this loss of quality isn’t noticeable to most users.
