Useful volcabulary and definitions for photo resizing

- Image resizing: The process of changing the dimensions of an image by adjusting the number of pixels in the image.

- Pixels: The tiny dots that make up an image. The more pixels an image has, the higher the resolution and the larger the file size.

- Resolution: The number of pixels in an image. A higher resolution image will have more pixels and therefore a larger file size.

- Compression: The process of reducing the file size of an image by removing unnecessary data. Different file formats, such as JPEG and PNG, use different types of compression to reduce the file size.

- File format: The type of file that an image is saved in. Different file formats, such as JPEG, PNG, and GIF, have different capabilities when it comes to image file size.

- Aspect ratio: The ratio of the width to the height of an image.

- Crop: The process of removing parts of an image in order to adjust its aspect ratio or focus on a specific area of the image.

- Scaling: The process of changing the size of an image by adjusting the number of pixels in the image.

- Interpolation: The process of adding pixels to an image in order to increase its size.

- Resampling: The process of adjusting the resolution of an image by removing or adding pixels.

- Lossless compression: A type of compression that reduces the file size of an image without losing any of the original image data.

- Lossy compression: A type of compression that reduces the file size of an image by discarding some of the original image data.

- DPI (Dots per Inch): A measure of the resolution of an image.

- Batch Processing: The process of processing multiple images at once.

- Algorithm: A set of instructions used to perform a specific task, in this case, image resizing.

Images are composed by several dots called pixels, and each of them has a color, represented as a combination of three basic colors (red, green and blue). To store each of these pixels, 3 bytes (24 ones or zeros) are generally used. When an image is large, it may have millions of pixels, and that means storing all information fo...

One way is compressing the image, which reduces file size without having to resize it. Image quality will suffer as you increase compression and start losing more data.

Another method is to resize your photo, decreasing the pixels it takes to store the image. Reducing image size doesn't reduce image quality, although it...

Our image resizing tool comes in both a free and a paid version. Both versions offer the same high-quality resizing capabilities, but the main benefits of the paid version is the ability to resize multiple images at once.

This feature allows users to process batches of large images in one go, saving time and effort. Th...
