When you drag and drop a .jpg image into QGIS it opens it as a Raster, however if the JPEG has a GPS coordinate in its EXIF metadata then I think QGIS should load it as a vector point at that location rather than a raster.

I've only tested this in QGIS 2.14, but I couldn't find any existing issues which address this.

PS. I'm not sure the best category, but I couldn't leave it blank.

this is something you can meanwhile to achieve with the photo2shape plugin, or also the tag and geotag photos ones.
