See Lossless JPEG for other uses of the term.

The original lossless JPEG (sometimes called lossless JPEG-1) refers to the original JPEG format when used with lossless compression, instead of the usual lossy compression. It is a standard type of JPEG file, defined in the original JPEG standard (ITU-T Rec. T.81). Though few applications support it, it has found some use in the medical industry (see DICOM), and in some raw camera formats. Note that this format is distinct from JPEG-LS.

A lossless JPEG image may have any bit depth from 2 to 16 bits per sample. The compression scheme uses Huffman coding or arithmetic coding.


[edit] Identification

A lossless JPEG file is identified by the presence of an SOF3, SOF7, SOF11, or SOF15 segment. Refer to JPEG for a discussion of JPEG segments.
