Fractal image compression is a very advantageous technique based on the representation of an image by a contractive transform. Based on fractals Fractal compression is a lossy compression method for digital images. The method is best suited for textures and natural images, relying on the fact that parts of an image often resemble other parts of the same image. In this paper we review and discuss about the Key issues of image compression, need of compression, its principles, and classes of compression and various compression algorithm of image. We review and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these algorithms for compressing images for lossless and lossy Techniques.
