Just started designing a new lossless image compressor!
- Simple GUI interface a la Windows Photo Viewer
- CRC-based image integrity checking
- Clipboard operations like Copy/Paste of the bitmap data - i.e. you can press the Print Screen button and paste the screen-shot to the program
- Strong and reasonable fast compression
So you you will able to freely view and convert new compressed files.
The compressor will be mainly intended for 24/32-bit BMP files.
The compression scheme will look like:
Color space transform (Optionally) -> Delta transform (Optionally) -> CM or BWT+CM
-> Compressed BMP
CM may have 2D contexts etc.
Any suggestions or ideas?
