Abstract—Fractal image compression partitions an image in to square range blocks that are coded via self-references to other parts of the image itself. In this project we propose an algorithm for Fractal Image Compression (FIC) that covers an image with square blocks without overlapping and introduces domain blocks. We define local contractive collection of affine transformation mapping domain block D to the range block R. For each range block, a corresponding domain block and symmetry block is developed so that the domain block looks mostly like part of the image. The algorithm is written in Matlab, and is tested on various images taken from real life. It is found that it produces satisfactory results.
