Smart phones are being used more than the laptops and PCs these days. Hence the need of JPG files has been increasing because smart phones like Android and iPhone do not inherently support PDF files. For smartphones you need smaller files with quicker load time and that is supported on all possible models and versions. JPG usually serves this purpose way better than a PDF document. Though PDF has lots of its own pros.
Introducing PDF and JPG files and their benefits
PDF is a format that gives an electronic image of text or text and graphics that looks a printed document. While JPG is for very small files of photo images used usually for email or web. JPG is often used in digital camera, memory cards etc.
PDF often requires an external application or plug-in, and are unnecessary if you want just a single page or image.
The majority of the office applications handle JPG images better.
PDFs also require a separate program to open, creating confusion for elderly people and kids.
Advantages of JPG:
JPG files normally have quicker load times than that of PDF files.
JPG permits embedding in a Word document, editing, and sharing with ease.
User friendly, better quality and lesser file size.
Comes in small file size with a small degree of compression and high image quality
Easily runs in any browsers, text and graphics programs, on all computers, tablets and mobile devices

Using Preview (Mac OS X):
We have many ways to convert a file on a Mac, but Preview is one of the best in the business. This is used for displaying various images and PDF documents and is already preinstalled in almost all versions of Mac OS
Using screenshots or the Snipping Tool This is not deemed one of the prettiest methods for converting files, but capturing the screenshot in the Mac OSX or using Windows’ built-in snipping tool is the suitable options. The quality may be compromised, but it will still get the job done for you.
