The need for image compression
Image compression software enables you to reduce the size of image files in order to include them as attachments in emails, or upload them to your website, among other uses. Some high-resolution images are too large to work with in their full size, and so compression software in needed to make them more manageable. Fortunately, many compression programs are available for this purpose.
Advantages of PDF compression
Unlike other types of image file compression, PDF compression enables you to reduce file size dramatically while preserving the quality of the image. PDF uses lossless compression algorithms to achieve significant reductions in file size without loss of information, setting it apart from other image file formats that are either unable to shrink significantly or sacrifice quality after the compression process.
