lossy defention

Lossy file compression results in lost data and quality from the original version. Lossy compression is typically associated with image files, such as JPEC, but can also be used for audio files, like Mp3 or AAC files.


Lossless compression is a class of data compression algorithms that allows the original data to be perfectly reconstructed from the compressed data.Lossless and lossy compression are terms that describe whether or not, in the compression of a file, all original data can be recovered when the file is uncompressed.
