Does compression of a photo change its resolution?

Compressed Images May Offer a Loss of Quality

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.

Be careful when you use a compressed photo because you will likely see the image resolution decrease somewhat.
