PDF
PDF (Portable Document Format) is the common document format, originally developed by Adobe Systems, in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems. Based on the PostScript language, each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, vector graphics, raster images and other information needed to display it.
JPG
JPG is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images, particularly for those images produced by digital photography. That means the loss in image quality. JPG achieves 10:1, even 20:1 compression in file size. Therefore, JPG can save the storage space. The higher compression ratio means the lower image quality. On the contrary, the image quality will be better. Besides, JPG can be uploaded and downloaded quickly due to its high compression rate.

Note: There are actually no differences between JPG and JPEG. The only difference is the number of characters. The earlier versions of Windows (MS-DOS 8.3 and FAT-16 file systems) required a three letter extension for the file names. So .jpeg was shortened to .jpg.
