How Converter Works

One of the most technologically significant developments in image compression to appear on the scene in 1992 was the JPG file format. Since then, it has dominated online image representation of high-quality photos. And with good cause. A significant portion of JPG's technology is extremely complicated and necessitates a thorough understanding of how the human eye reacts to the perception of colours and edges.

And because I'm interested in that sort of thing (and I assume you are if you're reading this), I wanted to explain how JPG encoding functions so we can learn how to create JPG files that are smaller.

Conversion of colour spaces
The idea that human sensors are not as accurate as computer systems is one of the fundamental tenets of lossy data compression. According to science, the human eye can physically differentiate just roughly 10 million different hues. However, there are several factors, such as how well a hue is highlighted with colour illusions or the fact that this outfit became viral, that can affect how the human eye perceives a colour. The main point is that it is possible to effectively modify how the human eye sees colour.

In lossy picture compression, quantization is a variation of this effect; however, JPG uses colour models instead. A colour space is a particular arrangement of colours, and its colour model is the formula for
