Background: In the region of image processing, a varied number of methods have already initiated the concept of data sciences optimization, in which, numerous global researchers have put their efforts upon the reduction of compression ratio and increment of PSNR. Additionally, the efforts have also separated into hardware and processing sections, that would help in emerging more prospective outcomes from the research. In this particular paper, a mystical concept for the image segmentation has been developed that helps in splitting the image into two different halves’, which is further termed as the atomic image. In-depth, the separations were done on the bases of even and odd pixels present within the size of the original image in the spatial domain. Furthermore, by splitting the original image into an atomic image will reflect an efficient result in experimental data. Additionally, the time for compression and decompression of the original image with both Quadtree and Huffman is also processed to receive the higher results observed in the result section. The superiority of the proposed schemes is further described upon the comparison basis of performances through the conventional Quadtree decomposition process.

Objective: The objective of this present work is to find out the minimum resources required to reconstruct the image after compression.

Method: The popular method of quadtree decomposition with Huffman encoding used for image compression.

Results: The proposed algorithm was implemented on six types of images and got maximum PSNR of 30.12dB for Lena Image and a maximum compression ratio of 25.96 for MRI image.

Conclusion: Different types of images are tested and a high compression ratio with acceptable PSNR was obtained.
