You'll need to download a couple utilities starting with a shareware utility called VideoMaker v2.3 by C3 Systems (http://www.demonweb.co.uk/c3sys/vmaker.htm) It's free to download so you can pull it off right away, but they do ask $20 to register if you want to keep using it. What this fast and simple utilitiy does is take a large number of JPG, BMP or GIF files and load them as a source, then you select AVI as the animation type, and let it go! It will create an uncompressed .AVI movie for you which works great, but since it's uncompressed it can take up a fair ammount of disk space. (Which usually doesn't matter since it's only temporary anyway)
Next you need to convert this rather large AVI file to MPEG format. For quality, TMPGEnc is the very best! (http://www.tmpgenc.net/) With this feature-packed free MPEG encoder, you can select your new AVI source and encode a very high quality mpeg format video for your needs.

You got it right. There is no way to convert a jpg, other other still image to a mpeg. What you can do those is take many jpegs convert them in a series to a mpeg. Just like cells or frames in cartoons and movies.
how can you change jpeg to mpeg, jpeg is just a still picture but mpeg is a movie format so unless you have a bunch of jpegs and can morph them into a moving picture like cartoons i really don't understand. but hey, technology's an amazing thing right?

Slide Show Movie Maker is a free program that can create an AVI-file from a series of .bmp or .jpg images. Images can have professional-looking fade-in and fade-out effects, plus attractive text overlays. The program's clean-looking interface is logically laid out; you should become productive within just a few minutes of running it. Keep in mind that .avi files can become quite large and take a long time to render. However, Slide Show Maker lets you choose to save output using any one of your system's installed .avi codecs, so the file size and generation time will vary depending upon which one you choose.
