IMComp is an Image COmpression Software based on MATLAB used to compress various JPEG images. This software is primarily useful for compressing images which are being taken with the help of Digital Cameras and Mobile Phones

Though using IMComp degrades the quality of images. So use of compressed images in not recommended for printing purposes. Image quality does not seem to be degraded if to be used for viewing purposes.

This could be handy software for compressing images and using the compressed images to E-Mail which comes out to be a major drawback of Digital Cameras which produce large image size depending on the resolution of image and image being taken.

Using this software compression ratio of 8 to 10 has been achieved during testing of the software.

One needs a complete setup of MATLAB or MATLAB Component Runtime 7.6(or higher) for running it.

I read your code but could not understand where actually is compression taking place.
imagecompression.m file simply writes these images using imwrite in 'newdir'.

Please help!
