To increase the image optimization rate is a big problem especially for web-based application and big
data. There are many guidelines and techniques to optimize the image. But still, there is a need to increase the image optimization rate. Among image optimization techniques most common is image cropping, optimization of image dimensions, deletion of irrelevant image layers and headers and save the image as “save for web”. Save the image for the web is mostly used by web designers. Among these techniques, we have proposed the image optimization technique by selecting the appropriate optimized colors. We use the Microsoft windows paint and compare the different images with different colors. We conclude that color is a prominent factor that affects the image size. Some colors are found to have very much size as compared to other colors. We also find that some colors having a difference of 24%. Most of the colors have 3% to 8% difference with each other. This appropriate color selection boosts the image optimization rate of an image.
Image size is a challenging problem especially for web and when we want to have big data.
Different techniques are available to optimize the image. Our proposed research shows different
behavior of different colors. We conclude that most colors have different size. Color is a factor that
can affect the image size. In PNG images Blue have less size as compared to Green. Green has less
size as compared to Red. Similarly Red with Blue has less size as compared to Red with Green. Green
with Blue has less size as compared to Green with Red. Blue with Green has less size as compared to
Blue with Red.
In PNG images, different colors have the same size.eg; Red, Green, and Blue have the same size but
one color with values 1-255 have different size. e.g.; Red color with values 1-255 has different size
against each value.
