We discuss holographic image representations. Arbitrary portions of a holographic representation enable reconstruction of the whole image, with distortions that decrease gradually with the increase of the size of the portions available. Holographic representations enable progressive refinement in image communication or retrieval tasks, with no restrictions on the order in which the data fragments (sections of the representation) are accessed or become available.
