"*.jp?g"

EDIT:

* = match any number of characters

? = match any single character

So the above translates to

*. = match any characters up to the dot

jp = match jp

? = match any single character ( in this case it could be an e as in jpeg)

g = match the g

If the File NAME (not the extension) has jpg as the last 3 letters that will work. If all the files are like something.jpg then the proper way is *.jpg
