Technique for fractal image compression using genetic algorithm.


A new method for fractal image compression is proposed using genetic algorithm (GA) with an elitist model. The self transformation property of images is assumed and exploited in the fractal image compression technique. The technique described utilizes the GA, which greatly decreases the search space for finding the self similarities in the given image. This article presents theory, implementation, and an analytical study of the proposed method along with a simple classification scheme. A comparison with other fractal-based image compression methods is also reported.
