interest in image compression by means of fractal techniques has been steadily
growing in recent years since Jaquin proposed a fully automatic image
compression algorithm called fractal block coding (FBC). In this paper, we
introduce a hybrid system where only the edge region of the image is coded by
fractal transform and the smooth region is modeled by other techniques. The
non-fractal coded region is used to help the coding of the fractal coded
region, so that the fractal coded region can be represented by fewer bits.
Experiments show that the overall coding efficiency is improved.
