Reducing the size of original data (Image, Audio, or Video) is called Data compression. Data compression is basically a technique in which data is represented with the help of fewer bits. These fewer bits (fewer pixels) will represent the original data as it is represented with the help of larger bits (larger pixels). With the help of lower bits (fewer pixels), the size of the data automatically decrease, it takes less storage space, faster writing and reading, it takes less time during the uploading and downloading. Whether you’re dealing with images, music, or video files, it’s important to understand the difference between different types of formats and when to use them. Using the wrong format could ruin a file’s quality or make its file size unnecessarily large. In this paper, I present a comparison among different image formats in the form of table, so that the user will decide which image format is better to use before using it.
