Fractal Image Compression has been an old and high compression method of still image compression, but it is being a slow method due to a computation complexity for searching the matching block from large domain. This paper proposed an analysis of domain blocks classification for speeding up the encoding time. For the analysis, three methods: fractal dimension (FD), linear interpolation (LI) and discrete cosine transform (DCT), are used for block complexity measure. The Experiments compares the methods with smooth and complex domain blocks classification.
