Optimisation of graphics for internet use is essential, due to bandwidth restrictions and the need to have fast-loading web pages. During the optimisation process, there is a certain loss of picture quality that can only be corrected by experienced web designers. There are different types of images and they react differently when their size is decreased - there may be pixilation or blurring. A thorough knowledge of the technical aspects of images is required to achieve crystal-clear quality on the web.
