The need for an efficient technique for compression of Images ever increasing because the raw images need large amounts of disk space seems to be a big disadvantage during transmission & storage. Even though there are so many compression technique already present a better technique which is faster, memory efficient and simple surely suits the requirements of the user. In this paper the authors proposed the Lossless method of image compression and decompression using a simple coding technique called Huffman coding. This technique is simple in implementation and utilizes less memory. A software algorithm has been developed and implemented to compress and decompress the given image using Huffman coding techniques in a MATLAB platform.
