Now-a-day the fractal image compression technique models a natural image using a contractive mapping called fractal mapping in the image space. Due to reducing the search complexity of matching between range block and domain block in fractal image compression is one of the most active research areas lately. There are two main characteristics of this approach are: it relies on the assumption that image redundancy can be efficiently captured and exploited through piecewise serf-transformability on a block-wise basis, and it approximates an original image by a fractal image, obtained from a finite number of iterations of an image transformation called a fractal code. This paper proposed to this approach as Fractal Block Coding.
