Compression Techniques, Image Compression, Lossless Compression, Lossy Compression,


With the proliferation of readily available image content, image compression has become a topic of considerable importance. As, rapidly increase of digital imaging demand, storage capability aspect should be considered. Therefore, image compression refers to reducing the size of image for minimizing storage without harming the image quality. Thus, an appropriate technique is needed for image compression for saving capacity as well as not losing valuable information. This paper consolidates literature whose characteristics have focused on image compression, thresholding algorithms, quantization algorithms. Later, related research on these areas are presented.
