Paper Abstract

A recent trend in computer graphics and image processing has been to use iterated function system (IFS) to generate and describe images. Barnsley et al. presented the conception of fractal image compression and Jacquin was the first to propose a fully automatic gray scale still image coding algorithm. This paper introduces a generalization of basic IFS, leading to a conception of partial iterated function system (PIFS). A PIFS operator is contractive under certain conditions and when it is applied to generate an image, only part of it is actually iteratedly applied. PIFS provides us a flexible way to combine fractal coding with other image coding techniques and many specific algorithms can be derived from it. On the basis of PIFS, we implement a partial fractal block coding (PFBC) algorithm and compare it with basic IFS based fractal block coding algorithm. Experimental results show that coding efficiency is improved and computation time is reduced while image fidelity does not degrade very much.
