This paper presents image compression technique based on column transform, row transform and full transform of an image. Different transforms like, DFT, DCT, Walsh, Haar, DST, Kekre’s Transform and Slant transform are applied on colour images of size 256x256x8 by separating R, G, and B colour planes. These transforms are applied in three different ways namely: column, row and full transform. From each transformed image, specific number of low energy coefficients is eliminated and compressed images are reconstructed by applying inverse transform. Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) between original image and compressed image is calculated in each case. From the implementation of proposed technique it has been observed that, RMSE values and visual quality of images obtained by column transform are closer to RMSE values given by full transform of images. Row transform gives quite high RMSE values as compared to column and full transform at higher compression ratio. Aim of the proposed technique is to achieve compression with acceptable image quality and lesser computations by using column transform.
