Fractal compression has not lived up to its promise as a high-quality low bit-rate image compression scheme. The existing algorithms for finding self-mapping contractive transforms for images are computationally expensive and offer a poor rate-quality tradeoff. In this paper we explore the error images resulting from a simple fractal compression scheme. We use a set of fractal maps as a predictor for the image, and store the error-image using the Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT). Our experiments show that such a composite scheme has worse rate-quality tradeoff than DCT alone.
