We present a new algorithm that utilizes mathematical morphology for pyramidal decomposition of color images. Several previous approaches have utilized linear or morphological smoothing to obtain pyramidal representations of monochrome images. In this paper an extension of various previously developed monochrome pyramid algorithms is presented. Our decomposition algorithm allows for lossy color image compression by using Block Truncation Coding at the pyramid levels to attain reduced bit rates.
