Image Compression and Lightweight Android Apps

Authors(3) :-Rajat Jhakal, Rishika Nagar, Rashi Jain

In Android operating system, to achieve greater performance efficient memory allocation and consumption is required. It is very important to efficiently use and manage the internal and external memory space present inside the mobile operating system. Various techniques have been used and implemented to reduce the memory usage in android. One of the techniques for better utilization of memory is image compression in android. The objective of image compression is to reduce the redundancy of the image and to store or transmit data in an efficient form. Based on this compression will be done on image by keeping its quality intact and the possibility of data loss will be minimal.
