So the object of image compression is to reduce irrelevance and redundancy of the image data in order to be able to store and/or transmit that data in a more efficient form.

It’s something that a lot of people don’t think about. But, as artists, this is a critical step as the more images we have (for example, in a portfolio) the more it strains the server with more requests (image asset requests) it has to make to access those images.

As those of you have followed me for some time you know I’m a stickler for creating and optimizing your digital images (of your art) in the most technologically savvy way in order for your art to be seen in it’s best “digital” light.

So it’s truly, in our best interests, to optimize our images in the most efficient way possible. It’s a great tool. It’s free and I’m happy to share it with you.
