February 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #49: Compressed Images May Offer a Loss of Quality

Tip of the Week

Computers and the Internet have allowed photographers a wider audience. Some even sell their photos worldwide on stock photography sites. But, computers also offer unique challenges when it comes to using and sharing photos. Because photos take up so much computer file space, some programs actually compress photos to help speed up the process of moving them around. Be careful when you use a compressed photo because you will likely see the image resolution decrease somewhat.
