What is a PJPEG file?
Bitmap image created in the Progressive JPEG format; encodes the bitmap data so that the downloaded image appears progressively from a blurry picture to the final sharp image; may also fill alternating horizontal lines until the full picture is revealed; allows image previews to be viewed before the entire image is downloaded.
Progressive JPEG files were once used by some older Web browsers, such as old versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, they are no longer widely supported.
NOTE: Progressive JPEGs are more often seen with the .PJPG extension.
