Image compression and decompression using adaptive interpolation
A simple and fast lossy compression and decompression algorithm for digital images is proposed. The method offers varying compression ratios (depending on dimensions of the image) and the acquired decompressed image is close to the original one. A selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality is allowed,making it possible to adjust degree of compression. Compared to JPEG, it provides us better compression ratio. The suggested method does not restrict itself to any particular type of image.
