An Image Compression Algorithm for Discontinuous Series of Similar Pixels
This paper represents lossy compression technique which can be effectively used for correlated pixels in both continuous and discontinuous series. Generally, compression is achieved by reducing redundancy through removal of similar pixels. Here, dependency of effective compression over their continuity has been removed. The efficiency of the proposed method has been described mathematically, proving it suitable for higher bit images. In computers now days, use of graphics has become common and is used almost everywhere. Thus, images are of important aspects. But due to their increased sizes, importance of compression techniques also stands with them. They need to be compressed so as they will occupy less space and can be sent to other locations through mail, etc easily.
