Image compression is now essential for applications such as transmission and storage in data bases.
This paper proposes a new scheme for image compression; this new method involves two steps. First, we
use a lifting scheme wavelet-based transform. Second, we develop a modified entropy coding algorithm. We
show how block subband coding leads to increase the compression factor with preserving the quality. The
main objective of this work is to encode the intra-frame in a video sequences.
