Definitions for "Image compression"
Keywords:  lossless, lossy, tiff, compress, jpg
Image compression minimizes the file size (in bytes) of an image. Two of the most common compressed image formats are JPEG and GIF. See also MPEG and Motion JPEG.
the compression of graphics for storage or transmission
These are techniques which are used to reduce the size of digital image files. Lossless compression techniques, such as those used in the GIF and TIFF formats, retain all of the original image data while still reducing the overall file size. Lossy compression techniques, such as those used in the JPG format, compress the image file by removing image details (usually those details that the eye does not see very well) and thus losing some of the original data.
Integrated Circuit Card ID (ICCID) Iridium
The mathematical manipulation that images are put through to squeeze out repetitive patterns. It makes them load and display much faster.
The translation of data in any format, (such as video or graphics) to a more compact form for storage or transmission such that it takes up less space in a computer's memory.
Operation that reduces the amount of image data and the time needed to transmit an image while preserving all or most of the information in the image.
