What is Base64 image conversion?

Base64 image conversion can be used when loading small files onto a website, such as icons. Instead of following a path to the graphical files on a web server, it is possible to directly read the content of the file.

Because the content of the file has already been read, it is no longer necessary to load the path to the file and the number if HTTP connections to the web server is decreased. As a result the website's loading time is shorter.
