Compressing images can improve their size and quality, but it can also affect the image results. The most common way to compress an image is to reduce the number of colors or decrease the resolution. The fewer colors there are in an image, the "soft" it looks. This can look blurry when looking at a large scale and even smaller than the original image. There are also other downsides to using fewer colors and/or reducing resolution that can affect how an image looks after compression: When you reduce the number of colors in an image, it becomes harder to see certain parts of the picture such as shadows and details (especially if you reduce the contrast). Since compression reduces the amount of data that needs to be transmitted over a wire, it may take longer to transmit pictures and video over the web.
Reducing resolution can make edges look blurry (especially when done at a low level like 1/6th of an inch) which makes it more difficult for viewers to focus on them.
