                        Introduction to compression

                        Compression ?
 :-Compression is the reduction in size of data in order to save space or transmission time. For
 data transmission, compression can be performed on just the data content or on the entire
 transmission unit (including header data) depending on a number of factors.

 :- Content compression can be as simple as removing all extra space characters, inserting a single
 repeat character to indicate a string of repeated characters, and substituting smaller bit strings
 for frequently occurring characters.

 :-This kind of compression can reduce a text file to 50% of its original size. Compression is
 performed by a program that uses a formula or algorithm to determine how to compress or
 decompress data.

                             The basics of compression
     Lossless and lossy compression
     Latency
                                Lossless                                compression
 :- A compression technique that decompresses data back                 to its original form without
 any loss. The decompressed file and the original are identical.
 :- All compression methods used to compress text, databases and other business data are lossless.
 For example, the ZIP archiving technology (PKZIP, WinZip, etc.) is a widely used lossless method.

                             lossy compression
:- Reduce non-sensitive information to human eyes (not mathematical, but physiological method)
:- Cannot reproduce original image
  :- Can specify the amount of information loss high compression

      (File Name)                                                                           Type
.BMP (Bitmap Image File )      Many older graphical user interfaces used bitmaps in Lossless
                                their built-in graphics subsystems.        Especially compression
                                on Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems.

                               BMP files may contain different levels of color depths
                                per pixel. They may also be stored using a grayscale
                                color scheme.

                               While most BMP files have a relatively large file size
                                due to lack of any compression.

.TIFF (Tagged Image File       TIFF files were designed to be a standard image format Lossy     and
Format)                         for saving high-quality color images on multiple lossless
                                computer platforms.                                    compression

                               The TIFF format was originally developed by Aldus,
                                who merged with Adobe Systems in 1994.

                               also supports multiple layers and pages.

                               file sizes are quite big.

.GIF (Graphical Interchange    Image file that may contain up to 256 indexed colors.    lossless

                               GIFs are common format for Web graphics, especially
                                small images and images that contain text, such as
                                navigation buttons.

                               They may also include transparent pixels, which allow
                                them to blend with different color backgrounds.
.JPEG (Joint Photographic       JPEG a good format for storing digital photos.            lossy

                                It stores information as 24 bit color.

                                JPEG images are commonly used for Web graphics and
                                 for storing photos taken with digital cameras.

                                Noticeably reduce the image quality if high amounts of
                                 compression are used.

.PNG (Portable       Network    Similar to a .GIF file but without copyright limitations; lossless

                                 because they are not intended for use with professional

                                PNG images are now supported by most Web browsers.

                                PNG images may include an 8-bit transparency
