Abstract

The ever increasing quantity of user generated photos, nearly all compressed using JPEG, has created a growing storage burden on photo storage and sharing services. This creates the need for compression techniques that take JPEG compressed images as inputs. In this paper we propose two novel very low complexity codecs, ROMP and L-ROMP to recompress JPEG photos, achieving increased coding efficiency by making use of very large entropy coding tables. ROMP is a lossless JPEG recompression codec that achieves 15% average gains over JPEG, while L-ROMP is a lossy codec that can achieve 29% average compression gains over JPEG, by applying coefficient thresholding based on a perceptual criterion to a JPEG image before using the entropy coding of ROMP.
