Jpeg Compression Programs
Which of Today's Top Graphics Programs
Does the Best Job

by Larry Berman and Chris Maher
Why is image compression so important to the Internet savvy photographer? Image files, in an uncompressed form are very large. And the Internet, especially for people using a 56k dialup modem, can be relatively slow. This combination could seriously limit one of the Web's most appreciated aspects - its ability to present images quickly and easily. JPEG compressed images are universally recognized by all modern browsers and support the millions of colors that are needed to make a photograph look great on the web.
