important topic in image processing is image compression. For
example, when images are transmitted over the Internet, or within PDF
files, they are typically compressed (either as JPEG or JPEG2000
files). In the course, we will examine how image compression
works, using freeware (Image Analyzer) and open-source software (ImComp). The
two most commonly used compression methods, JPEG and its successor
JPEG2000 will be explained, as well as the fundamentals of image
compression in general.
The figures below
illustrate image compression, the method used to generate the
compression will be fully explained in the course.
