A method that integrates tone mapping for high dynamic range (HDR) gray-scale images with JPEG compression is proposed. The tone mapping operator (TMO) is block-based, and structured so that the same discrete cosine transform (DCT) that is used for the JPEG compression serves to complete a major part of the tone-mapping operation. Simulations have been done on high dynamic range images from the Debevec library. Experimental results show the technique successfully tone maps and compresses simultaneously; the number of bits per pixel is reduced from 32 to an average of 0.67 by the compression, with an average PSNR of 56.3 dB for the compressed tone-mapped images compared to images that have been only tone-mapped. The output of the proposed method is an image that requires only limited storage space, and can be decompressed with a standard JPEG decoder.
