A new design method of image compression as Intensity Based Adaptive Fuzzy Coding (IBAFC) is presented. In this design, the image is decomposed to non overlapping square blocks and hence each block is classified as either edge or smooth blocks. This classification based upon some predefined Threshold compared to adaptive quantization level of each block. Then each block is coded as either fuzzy F-transform compressed for edge block or mean value of block is sent for smooth block. The experimental results proves that the proposed IBAFC scheme is superior to conventional AQC and Intensity based AQC (IBAQC) on measures like MSE PSNR alongwith visual quality.
