Not sure if this is the right place as I'm new to Stack Exchange but I was messing around with a discord bot that had a Minecraft texture tiling feature and I got 2 transparent jpeg files from it. I'm just wondering how this is possible

one of them

the other one

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. It's not a JPG. It's a PNG. I suspect what you have is PNG which has just had the extension changed to JPG. Changing a file extension doesn't change the format.

Save a PNG...

...then, using the Mac Finder or Windows Explorer, change the suffix from png to jpg.

Result a transparent PNG file with a jpg suffix - not an actual jpg.

  • ohh okay, though i have tried that before and it never worked, oh well thanks for the explanation
