The present work is concerned with a review of various techniques of fractal image compression. Firstly variance-ordered domain block search algorithm and then Randomized domain block search algorithm is discussed. An analysis is performed on both of them and on the basis of the analysis a new algorithm is proposed. After that a detailed comparative analysis is performed by implementing the algorithms in Matlab. For our comparison we compare the PSNR of the reconstructed image.
