Whats is JPEG Compression?

JPEG compression is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital photos. Just about any photo you see posted on the web has been compressed to reduce the file size (and download times). The degree of compression can be adjusted - lower quality settings use higher compression and produce smaller file sizes. Higher quality settings will use less compression, resulting in better image quality.

JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality.

We recommend a value between 70% and 80% for best results.

Feel free to experiment with the quality settings to achieve the best result for your images.
