Hi All
 iam currently working on jpeg implentation on Matlab could anybody plz
gimme some inputs how to go abt it... related links also help a
lot........ thanx in advance

Well, depending on your application, you may be able to cut out the lossless portions of JPEG. For instance, if you are working on deblocking schemes, then the lossless portions (e.g., Huffman coding) don't matter since they don't affect the blocking artifacts. Tell us more about what you are trying to do, and then we might be able to tell you how better to go about it. Cheers! --M
hey thanx for replayin  right now my position is i know tha complete
flow of JPEG and iam trying compress  a  simple QCIF(176X144) image i
wanna know how to go abt writin code fro ir any implementation details
will helps me lot
thanx in advance

So, is this an educational exercise? If so, I'd recommend looking into one of the many free, open-source JPEG libraries for some guidance (Google can help you find them). Most are in C, but you could translate it to Matlab or use it as an external library from Matlab (see the Matlab docs). If your goal is just to *use* JPEG compression for some application, the image processing toolbox can read and write JPEGs, and the aforementioned open-source libraries could provide the same functionality with a little work on your part if you don't have said toolbox. If you have more specific questions, feel free to ask. Cheers! --M
thanx and as u said it is an educational exercise iam doin this for my
project work , iam doing my MTech program and i  need  do this
implementation as a part of my [project work .plz guide me how to
implement transformation part(including inverse transformation) say
wavelet in matlab ??
thanx in advance

You said you understand the "complete flow of JPEG." So, do you need guidance on the discrete cosine transform (DCT)? Do you know how to perform it in 2D on each 8x8 block with MATLAB's dct2 function? I'm not sure what your specific question is. Also, you refer to wavelets, but the original JPEG has nothing to do with wavelets, although the newer JPEG2000 does. You can find lots of information on both at jpeg.org, including some sample implementations. Again, feel free to ask a *specific* question, but from what you've posted so far, I can't tell what you're having trouble with. Cheers! --M
ok thanx .....complete flow in theoritical sense i know .... but i know
there is a gap alwaays iam in the process of learning any way i will
start writing matlab code and  if  i get any doubt in between
definetely i will post it for clarisications
