Web Directions Code ’20 session spotlight–Understanding image compression

Understanding image compression

Andi Tjong, Developer Atlassian

There are so many ways you can compress an image before serving it on the web, and there are a lot of tools that can help you with that. However, how does image compression actually works? and why there are many types of image compression?

In this talk, Andi will explain how different image compression algorithms work, and in which cases they will be best used for, also the reason why we need all of them instead of just using a single compression algorithm.
