Paper Abstract

Many choices are available for lossless image compression.Each technique offers different tradeoffs between compression ratios, execution speeds, and flexibility. Performance tradeoffs typically depend on user- specified scaling parameters, and on the type of image. This investigation focuses on five well-established methods for performing lossless image compression: 'deflate' compression, Lempel-Ziv-Welch, Graphic INterchange Format, Portable Network Graphic format, and baseline JPEG-LS. Several classes of imagery are covered, and the merits of three color-mapping techniques are examined.
