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!
