What is Image Compression in Image Processing
/ February 10, 2018

A marked progress has been made in the field of image compression and its application in various branches of engineering. Image compression is associated with removing redundant information of image data. It is a solution which associated with storage and data transmission problem of huge amounts of data for digital image. Compressing an image is significantly different than compressing raw binary data. Of course, general purpose compression programs can be used to compress images, but the result is less than optimal. This is because images have certain statistical properties which can be exploited by encoders specifically designed for them. Also, some of the finer details in the image can be sacrificed for the sake of saving a little more bandwidth or storage space. Overview of Image Compression Image compression is an application of data compression that encodes the original image with few bits. The objective of image compression is to reduce the redundancy of the image and to store or transmit data in an efficient form. Image compression is a type of an application for data/image compression in which the basic image gets encoded with the limited bits. To lower the irrelevance and the redundancy of image data is the…
