Is there a way to save the image with a file extension as jpg not jpeg? Why did was it changed? The industry standard is jpg.

They are both pretty standard. I couldn't find anything anywhere that states whether one or the other is an "official standard." Older version of Windows could only handle 3-letter extensions. These days, Windows and Mac can handle longer extensions without problems, so 4-letter variations such as .tiff rather than .tif, or .jpeg rather than .jpg are often used because they are more descriptive. The acronym stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, so having the E included is a more accurate representation of the name. the good neow is, the files are identical, so you won't see any difference in how the files are handled by any software.

If it really bothers you, though, all you need to do is rename the file. But as Axeman says, it shouldn't make any difference.
