JPEG encoding is a common technique to compress images. However, since JPEG is a lossy compression certain artifacts may occur in the compressed image. These artifacts typically occur in high frequency or detailed areas of the image. This paper proposes an algorithm based on the SSIM metric to improve the experienced quality in JPEG encoded images. The algorithm improves the quality in detailed areas by up to 1.29 dB while reducing the quality in less detailed areas of the image, thereby increasing the overall experienced quality without increasing the image data size. Further, the algorithm can also be used to decrease the file size (by up to 43%) while preserving the experienced image quality. Finally, an efficient GPU implementation is presented. Â© 2014 IEEE.
