Unraveling the JPEG

Details

Come have lunch with Papers We Love and enjoy good food and geeky talk. We'll be discussing the interactive article, "Unravelling the JPEG." This fairly technical but highly readable article shows you exactly how JPEG images achieve such excellent photo compression without badly degrading the image, and the article is punctuated at regular intervals with interactive editors which allow you to change the values in the file and see the resulting change in the image.
