Compression is applied to each headline. It is used as a system limit, to prevent disadvantageous effects on system performance. If compression would not be applied, for example, your online store would load significantly slower.

About recommended theme dimensions

Each theme will have recommended sizes for headlines. For best results, make sure the size of your images matches the dimensions specified, otherwise they will be stretched or compressed. When you upload images that are larger in size, maintain a dimension ratio matching the proportions in the table. We recommend you use .PNGs.
