A Practical Approach to Fractal-Based Image Compression

  title={A Practical Approach to Fractal-Based Image Compression},
  author={Alex Pentland and Bradley Horowitz},
  booktitle={Data Compression Conference},
F'ractal techniques for image compression have recently attracted a great deal of attention. Unfortunately, little in the way of practical algorithms or techniques have been published. We present a technique for image compression that is based on a very simple type of iterative fractal. In our algorithm a wavelet transform (quadrature mirror filter pyramid) is used to decompose an image into bands containing information from different scales (spatial frequencies) and orientations. The… CONTINUE READING
