Artificial Neural Network for TIFF Image Compression


The main aim of image compression is to reduce the its size to be able for transforming and storage, therefore many methods appeared to compress the image, one of these methods is "Multilayer Perceptron ".Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) method which is artificial neural network based on the Back-Propagation algorithm for compressing the image. In case this algorithm depends upon the number of neurons in the hidden layer only the above mentioned will not be quite enough to reach the desired results, then we have to take into consideration the standards which the compression process depend on to get the best results.We have trained a group of TIFF images with the size of (256*256) in our research, compressed them by using MLP for each compression process the number of neurons in the hidden layer was changing and calculating the compression ratio, mean square error and peak signal-to-noise ratio to compare the results to get the value of original image.The findings of the research was the desired results as the compression ratio was less than five and a few mean square error thus a large value of peak signal-to-noise ratio had been recorded.
