Re: Image compression on etrax

Hi again,

It is 24 bit color images that I want to compress.

Does not zlib use a similar algirithm as gzip. Compressing images with gzip usually only makes it slightly smaller (if the image does not contain large areas with only one color).

I have been reading a bit about different compression codes but I cant find any good place where the main issue is processing power, usually it focuses on compression quality and/or compression factor. But when you develop on an embedded system with limited processing power and no fpu you really need to focus on performance.

i guess it depends what type of data you have. Real images or black &

Hi all,

Can anyone here on the list recommend some good image compression routine
that can be run on the etrax platform. I have tried  libjpeg, but
compressing a image that is 320*240x24bit takes more than 1.5 sec. The
perfect routine for me would provide loss-less compression. Speed is more
important than high compression.

Thanks for your time,
