Data compression Image

About this lesson

Students will learn how the information in a pixel can be manipulated to change the image, and apply a bitmask filter to an image to remove some information and reduce the memory size of the file. Finally, students will modify the filter to find a balance between quality and small file size. Based on the original lessons developed by the Exploring Computational Thinking team at Google.

Year band: 7-8, 9-10
