The term SmartVision has been broadened to be an umbrella term to describe any of the methods we apply to intelligently reduce the compression ratio of images. The way we do it for PNGs is by reducing the amount of color information, discarding data that is not used. The reduction varies from image to image, but the result is an image that is significantly smaller in file size with no discernible visual difference.
