1. What is Image Compression?

In short, it’s a process to reduce the size of the images without affecting the quality and structure. The Portable Graphic Format (PNG) files is a lossless data compression format.  PNG area widely uses on websites and blogs because the quality of the image is much better than JPG.

It’s a good choice for drawing, painting, icon and graphic. It also can display a transparent background. When you do image compression, it’s hard to differentiate before and after because it looks similar. That’s the beauty of image compression.
