**Abstract—Lossy compression techniques are more efficient in
**

terms of storage and transmission needs. In the case of Lossy

compression, image characteristics are usually preserved in the

coefficients of the domain space in which the original image is

transformed. For transforming the original image, a simple but

efficient wavelet transform used for image compression is called

Haar Wavelet Transform. The goal of this paper is to achieve

high compression ratio in images using 2 D Haar Wavelet

Trnasform by applying different compression thresholds for the

wavelet coefficients and these results are obtained in fraction of

seconds and thus to improve the quality of the reconstructed

image ie., to arrive at an approximation of our original image.

Another approach for lossy compression is, instead of

transforming the whole image, to separately apply the same

transformation to the regions of interest in which the image

could be devided according to a predetermined characteristic.

The Objective of the paper deals to get the coefficients is nearly

closer to zero. More specifically, the aim of the thesis is to

exploit the correlation characteristics of the wavelet coefficients

as well as second order characteristics of images in the design of

improved lossy compression systems for medical images. Here a

modified simple but efficient calculation schema for Haar

Wavelet Transform.

I. INTRODUCTION

N recent years, many studies have been made on wavelets.

An excellent overview of what wavelet have brought to the

fields as diverse as biomedical applications, wireless

communication, computer graphics or turbulence [30]. Image

compression is one of the most visible applications of

wavelets. The rapid increase in the range and use of

electronic imaging justifies attention of systematic design of

an image compression system and for providing the image

quality needed in different applications. A typical still image

contains a large amount of spatial redundancy in plain areas

where adjacent picture elements (pixels, pels) have almost

same values. It means that the pixel values are highly

correlated [31]. The basic measure for the performance of a

compression algorithm is Compression Ratio (CR). In a lossy

compression scheme, the image compression algorithm

should achieve a tradeoff between compression ratio and

image quality [32]. The balance of the paper is organized as

follows: In section II describes the properties and advantages

of haar wavelet transformation. In section III considers the

procedure for haar wavelet transformation. In section IV,

Implementation methodologies for wavelet compression and

linear algebra are discussed. In section V describes the

algorithm for its implementation. In section VI considers the

comparison for metrics. In section VII considers the graphs,

HWT image compression output results, and these results are

plotted between various parameters. In section VIII

elaborates on the importance of this paper, some applications

and its extensions. Quality and compression can also vary

according to input image characteristics and content. Images

need not be reproduced exactly. An approximation of the

original image is enough for most purposes, as long as the

error between the original and the compressed image is

tolerable. Lossy compression technique can be used in this

area.

- The basis vectors of the Haar matrix are sequency

ordered.

- Haar Transform has poor energy compaction for

images.

- Orthogonality: The original signal is split into a low

and a high frequency part, and filters enabling the

splitting without duplicating information are said to be

orthogonal.

- Linear Phase: To obtain linear phase, symmetric filters

would have to be used.

- Compact support: The magnitude response of the filter

should be exactly zero outside the frequency range

covered by the transform. If this property is satisfied,

the transform is energy invariant.

- Perfect reconstruction: If the input signal is

transformed and inversely transformed using a set of

weighted basis functions, and the reproduced sample

values are identical to those of the input signal, the

transform is said to have the perfect reconstruction

property. If, in addition no information redundancy is

present in the sampled signal, the wavelet transform is,

as stated above, ortho normal.

No wavelets can possess all these properties, so the choice

of the wavelet is decided based on the consideration of which

of the above points are important for a particular application.

Haar-wavelet, Daubechies-wavelets and biorthogonal-

wavelets are popular choices [1]. These wavelets have

properties which cover the requirements for a range of

applications.

The advantages of Haar Wavelet transform as follows:

1. Best performance in terms of computation time.

2. Computation speed is high.

3. Simplicity

4. HWT is efficient compression method.

5. It is memory efficient, since it can be calculated inplace

without a temporary array.

III. PROCEDURE FOR HAAR WAVELET TRANSFORM

To calculate the Haar transform of an array of n samples:

1. Find the average of each pair of samples. (n/2

averages)

2. Find the difference between each average and the samples

it was calculated from. (n/2 differences)

3. Fill the first half of the array with averages.

4. Fill the second half of the array with differences.

5. Repeat the process on the first half of the array. (The array

length should be a power of two)

IV. IMPLEMENTATION METHODOLOGY

Each image [27] is presented mathematically by a matrix

of numbers. Haar wavelet uses a method for manipulating the

matrices called averaging and differencing. Entire row of a

image matrix is taken, then do the averaging and differencing

process. After we treated entire each row of an image matrix,

then do the averaging and differencing process for the entire

each column of the image matrix. Then consider this matrix

is known an semifinal matrix (T) whose rows and columns

have been treated. This procedure is called wavelet

transform.

Then compare the original matrix and last matrix

that is semifinal matrix(T), the data has became smaller.

Since the data has become smaller, it is easy to transform and

store the information. The important one is that the treated

information is reversible. To explain the reversing process

we need linear algebra. Using linear algebra is to maximize

compression while maintaining a suitable level of detail.

A. Wavelet Compression Methodology

From Semi final Matrix (T) is ready to be compressed. [29]

Definition of Wavelet Compression is fix a non negative

threshold value ε and decree that any detail coefficient in the

wavelet transformed data whose magnitude is less than or

equal to zero (this leads to a relatively sparse matrix). Then

rebuild an approximation of the original data using this

doctored version of the wavelet transformed data. In the case

of image data, we can throw out a sizable proportion of the

detail coefficients in this and obtain visually acceptable

results. This process is called lossless compression. When no

information is loss (eg., if c=0). Otherwise it is referred to as

lossy compression (in which case c >0). In the former case,

we can get our original data back, and in the latter we can

build an approximation of it. Because we know this, we can

eliminate some information from our matrix and still be

capable of attaining a fairly good approximation of our

original matrix. Doing this, we take threshold value ε=10

ie., reset to zero all elements of semifinal matrix(T) which are

less than or equal to 10 in absolute value. From this we obtain

the doctored matrix. Then apply the inverse wavelet

transform to doctored matrix we get the reconstructed

approximation R.

In this process, we can get a good approximation of

the original image. We have lost some of the detail in the

image but it is so minimal that the loss would not be

noticeable in most cases.

B. Linear Algebra Methodology

To apply the averaging and differencing using linear

algebra [27] we can use matrices such as A1,A2,A3…..An.

that perform each of the steps of the averaging and

differencing process.

i. When multiplying the string by the first matrix of the

first half of columns are taking the average of each pair

and the last half of columns take the corresponding

differences.

ii. The second matrix works in much the same way, the first

half of columns now perform the averaging and

differencing to the remaining pairs, and the identity

matrix in the last half of columns carry down the detail

coefficient from step i.

iii. Similarly in the final step, the averaging and differencing

is done by the first two columns of the matrix, and the

identity matrix carries down the detail coefficient from

previous step.

iv. To simplify this process, we can multiply these matrices

together to obtain a single transform matrix

W=A1A2A3) we can now multiply our original string by

just one transform matrix to go directly form the original

string to the final results of step iii.

v. In the following equation we simplify this process of

matrix multiplication. First the averaging and

differencing and second the inverse of those operation.

V. ALGORITHM

- Read the image from the user.

- Apply 2 D DWT using haar wavelet over the image

- For the computation of haar wavelet transform, set

the threshold value 25%, 10%, 5%, 1% ie., set all

the coefficients to zero except for the largest in

magnitude 25%, 10%, 5%, 1% . And reconstruct an

approximation to the original image by apply the

corresponding inverse transform with only modified

approximation coefficients.

- This simulates the process of compressing by factors

of ¼,1/10,1/20,1/100 respectively.

- Display the resulting images and comment on the

quality of the images.

- Calculate MSE, MAE & PSNR values of different

Compression Ratios for corresponding Reconstructed

images.

- Then add a small amount of white noise to the input

image. Default : variance =0.01, sigma=0.1, mean=0

- To compute the haar wavelet transform, set all the

approximation coefficients to zero except those

whose magnitude is larger than 3 sigma.

- This same case is applicable to detail coefficients

that is horizontal, vertical & diagonal coefficients.

- Reconstruct an estimate of the original image by

applying the corresponding inverse transform.

- Display and compare the results by computing the

root mean square error, PSNR, and mean absolute

error of the noisy image and the denoising image.

- The same process is repeated for various images and

compare its performance.

Alternative approach Algorithm is described as follows:

1. Read the image cameraman.tif from the user.

2. Using 2D wavelet decomposition with respect to a haar

wavelet computes the approximation coefficients matrix

CA and detail coefficient matrixes CH, CV, CD

(horizontal, vertical & diagonal respectively) which is

obtained by wavelet decomposition of the input matrix

ie., im_input.

3. From this, again using 2D wavelet decomposition with

respect to a haar wavelet computes the approximation

and detail coefficients which are obtained by wavelet

decomposition of the CA matrix. This is considered as

level 2.

4. Again apply the haar wavelet transform from CA matrix

which is considered as CA1 for level 3.

5. Do the same process and considered as CA2 for level 4

6. Take inverse transform for level 1, level 2, level 3 &

level 4 that ie., im_input, CA, CA1, CA2.

7. Reconstruct the images for level 1, level 2, level 3 &

level 4.

8. Display the results of reconstruction 1, reconstruction 2,

reconstruction 3, reconstruction 4 ie., level 1 , 2 , 3 , 4

with respect to the original image.

VI. METRICS FOR COMPARISON

A. Compression Metrics

The type of compression metrics [21] used for digital data

varies quite markedly depending on the type of compression

employed that use a simple ratio formula as given below

CompressionRatio(%)=

Output File size (bytes)

Input File size (bytes)

x100 (5)

A measure of rate is far more suitable metric for large

compression ratios as it gives the number of bits per pixel

used to encode an image rather than some abstract

percentage.

Rate(bpp)=

8 x Output File size (bytes)

Input File size (bytes)

(6)

Rate, for image coding purposes, uses bits per pixel (bpp)

as its unit.

B. Error Metrics

In general, error measurements are used on lossy

compressed images to try and quantify the quality of a

picture. Getting a quantifiable measure of the distortion

between two images is very important as one can try and

minimize this thesis so as to better replicate the original

image. There are many ways of measuring the fidelity of a

picture g(x,y) to its original f(x,y). One of the simplest and

most popular methods is to use the difference between f and

g. In its most basic form is the mean square error (MSE) [11]

given by,

MSE=

where f and g are N1xN2 size image. This is a very useful

measure as it gives an average value of the energy loss in the

lossy compression of the original image f. Signal-to-noise

ratio (SNR) is another measure often used to compare the

performance of reproduced images which is defined by,

SNR=10xlog10

SNR is measured in dB's and gives a good indication of the

ratio of signal to noise reproduction. This is a very similar

measurement to MSE. A more subjective qualitative

measurement of distortion is the Peak Signal-to-noise ratio

(PSNR) [3].

The standard error measures a large distortion, but the

image has merely been brightened. Individually, MSE, SNR

and PSNR are not very good at measuring subjective image

quality, but used together these error metrics are at least

adequate at determining if an image is reproduced at a certain

quality.

VII. RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS

The project deals with the implementation of the haar

wavelet compression techniques and a comparison over

various input images. We first look in to results of wavelet

compression technique by calculating their comparison ratios

and then compare their results based on the error metrics

which is shown in Table I.

A. Effects on Compression Ratio Vs Various Parameters

Wavelet Compression is applied for all images and the

compression ratio is being calculated. The image quality thus

measured in compression techniques is compared using a

BAR CHART, which proves the image quality of the various

input images which reconstructed images are better. This is

shown in Fig 1 & 2.

Fig. 2. Effects on Compression Ratio Vs PSNR with

Respect to various input images

In the first experiment, we report on Compressed Ratio

consumed by Error Metrics as described in the previous

section. In our experiments, we used the gray scale sample,

cameraman.tif of size 256*256. And measured the

compression ratio and the PSNR of the compressed image. In

each case, the threshold level was changed and got the output.

The results are presented in Fig 5. The x-axis represents

Compression Ratio, while the y-axes represent MSE with

various input images.

In the Second experiment, we report on Compression Ratio

Vs PSNR with various input images. In our experiments, we

used the gray scale image samples. In each case, the threshold

level was changed and got the output. The results are

presented in Fig 5. The x-axis represents Compression ratio,

while the y-axes represents PSNR with various input

images.

The quality of compressed image depends on the no of

decompositions. The no of decompositions determines the

resolution of the lowest level in wavelet domain. Using larger

no of decompositions, that will be more successful in

resolving important HWT coefficients from less important

coefficients. After decomposing the image and representing

it with wavelet coefficients, compression can be performed by

ignoring all coefficients below some threshold. In this

experiment, compression is obtained by wavelet coefficient

thresholding. All coefficients below some threshold are

neglected and Compression Ratio is computed. Compression

Algorithm operation is follows : Compression Ratio is fixed

to the required level and threshold value has been changed to

achieve required Compression Ratio after that PSNR is

computed. PSNR tends to saturate for a larger no of

decompositions. For each compression ratio, the PSNR

characteristic has “threshold” which represents the optimal

no of decompositions. Below and above the threshold PSNR

decreases and no of decomposition increases. PSNR is

increased up to some no of decompositions. Beyond that,

increasing the no of decomposition has a negative effect.

PSNR values depend on image type and cannot be used to

compare images with different content.

The quality of the reconstructed image is measured using

the error metrics:

- MSE

- PSNR

The values of MSE & PSNR are calculated for all test images

and are provided in Table II.

VIII. CONCLUSION

This paper reported is aimed at developing computationally

efficient and effective algorithm for lossy image compression

using wavelet techniques. This paper is particularly targeted

towards wavelet image compression using Haar

Transformation with an idea to minimize the computational

requirements to achieve good reproduction image quality. In

this direction the following methods are developed. This

image compression schemes for images have been presented

based on the 2 D HWT. The promising results obtained

concerning reconstructed image quality as well as

preservation of significant image details, while on the

otherhand achieving high compression rates.

- High compression ratio and better image quality

obtained which is better than existing methods.

- In addition, the above methods are to be for noisy

images

- To improve the quality of the reconstructed image

- The results are executed in fraction of seconds.

zero.

at much faster rates by greatly reducing the necessary

averaging time to construct low noise images.

The performance of an image compression algorithm is

basically evaluated in terms of compression ratio, MSE, and

PSNR. A `good' algorithm has a high compression ratio.

Wavelet based image compression theory has rapidly

increased in the last seven years. With the increasing use of

multimedia technologies image compression requires higher

performance as well as new functionality. To address this

need in the specific area of still image compression here a

new compression technique is proposed. The results proved

that the compression ratio is very high and the reconstruction

is same as that of the original image.

Wavelet based image compression indeed is a new and

emerging area and has a lot of scope for improvement and

extension. In future the following aspects may be considered

for improving the algorithm.

This paper has focused on development of efficient and

effective algorithm for still image compression. Fast and lossy

coding algorithm using wavelet is developed.

Results shows that reduction in encoding time with little

degradation in image quality compared to existing methods.

While comparing the developed method with other methods

compression ratio is also increased.

Some of the applications require a fast image compression

technique but most of the existing technique requires

considerable time. So this proposed algorithm developed to

compress the image so fastly.

Wavelet transform is popular in image compression mainly

because of its multi resolution and high energy compaction

properties. Pictures or images are non stationary in frequency

and spatial content; hence, data representing picture content

may be any where in the actual picture. This property is

included in this thesis.

The main bottleneck in the compression lies in the search

of domain, which is inherently time expensive. This leads to

excessive compression time. The algorithm can be improved

by applying some indexing scheme.

The algorithm needs to be explored and tuned for domain

specific application one of the major application area lies in

the satellite imagery. As large quantity remote sensing data

are collected on a regular basis for different level resource

monitoring, there is an increasing need for compression for

better data management. Through investigations of different

categories of satellite imagery are required and SNR, depth

of search etc. are to be studied to determine the usability of

fractal image compression.

Better visual modules and perception based error criteria

are needed for image coding. Using wavelet number of

implementation issues such as bit allocation methods and

error estimation can be studied.

Image denoising method using wavelet for noisy image

could be developed. This yield better result in image

compression techniques using wavelet for noisy input images.

Lossy compression techniques are more efficient in terms of storage and transmission needs. In the case of Lossy compression, image characteristics are usually preserved in the coefficients of the domain space in which the original image is transformed. For transforming the original image, a simple but efficient wavelet transform used for image compression is called Haar Wavelet Transform. The goal of this paper is to achieve high compression ratio in images using 2 D Haar Wavelet Trnasform by applying different compression thresholds for the wavelet coefficients and these results are obtained in fraction of seconds and thus to improve the quality of the reconstructed image ie., to arrive at an approximation of our original image. Another approach for lossy compression is, instead of transforming the whole image, to separately apply the same transformation to the regions of interest in which the image could be devided according to a predetermined characteristic. The Objective of the paper deals to get the coefficients is nearly closer to zero. More specifically, the aim of the thesis is to exploit the correlation characteristics of the wavelet coefficients as well as second order characteristics of images in the design of improved lossy compression systems for medical images. Here a modified simple but efficient calculation schema for Haar Wavelet Transform.
