Paper Abstract

Wavelet compression for arbitrary size images is discussed. So far, wavelet compression has dealt with restricted size images, such as 2n X 2m. I propose practical and efficient methods of wavelet transform for arbitrary size images, i.e. method of extension to F (DOT) 2m and method of extension to even numbers at each decomposition. I applied them to 'Mona Lisa' with the size of 137 X 180. The two methods showed almost the same calculation time for both encoding and decoding. The encoding times were 0.83 s and 0.79 s, and the decoding times were 0.60 s and 0.57 s, respectively. The difference in bit-rates was attributed to the difference in the interpolation of the edge data of the image.
