  • Hey guys! I have some data I need to store and I was a bit confused about data compression. Will you guys help me out?
  • Hi, you've come to the right place for help. Data compression is when you store data using less bits than the original
  • First of all, there are two types of data compression: lossy and lossless
  • Lossy compression is when a file is reduced by removing some data not noticeable by the human eye. This type of compression is irreversible
  • In comparison, lossless compression is when the data is just compressed and nothing is removed. The file can be restored to the original
  • Lossy compression is mostly used in multimedia data such as audio, video and images
  • In comparison, lossless compression is used for text and data files, such as bank records and text articles.
  • Oh wow that really helped me out. Now I know all about data compression. Thank you!
