Abstract
A fractal-based method for color image compression is presented. The method transforms the direct color components into three approximate principal components and applies a fractal-based compression method developed for gray-scale images to each new component. The main principal component, which contains a large amount of energy, is coded with high accuracy, while the other two components can be coded at lower accuracy and a very high compression ratio. The principal-component-based method gives an overall higher quality in the reconstructed image at a similar compression rate compared with compression based on other linear transforms of the color space.
