In this paper, we present scalable compression algorithms for image browsing. Recently, the International Standards Organization (ISO) has proposed the JPEG standard for still image compression. JPEG standard not only provides the basic feature of compression (baseline algorithm) but also provides the framework for reconstructing images in different picture qualities and sizes. These features are referred to as SNR and spatial scalability, respectively. SNR scalability and spatial scalability can be implemented using the progressive and hierarchical modes in the JPEG standard. In this paper, we implement and investigate the performance of the progressive and hierarchical coding modes of the JPEG standard and compare their performance with the baseline algorithm.
