The common JPEG could be about to get a lot smaller thanks to Google’s new software.

Guetzli is a new open source algorithm which creates JPEG files 35% smaller than typical current methods.

The Guetzli encoder works by increasing the level of compression while creating the JPEGs, leaving the standard decompression algorithms for reading and displaying the images unchanged. The increase in compression comes from a new and more sophisticated model of human colour perception than is used by current JPEG encoders.
