Many times we may have an image (JPG format) with us, and we wish it could be edited. It could be an important document that you may want to edit and share it with someone. It could be for work purpose, for educational purpose, or for printing purpose. However, when you try editing the JPG image it will not be possible, because it does not come with that option.
