What is a JPE file?

A .JPE file is a JPEG raster image file. The .jpe file extension is used on compressed image files, but more commonly these types of image files use the .jpeg file extension.

Often bitmap images are saved in .jpe format in order to reduce the size of the files. However, JPEG is a lossy file format, which means that image quality is reduced if you compress the image too much. For JPE files, the compression level is usually a setting in the software producing the file.
