In general, the compression method is developed to reduce the redundancy of data. This study uses a different approach to embed some bits of datum in image data into other datum using a Reversible Low Contrast Mapping (RLCM) transformation. Besides using the RLCM for embedding, this method also applies the properties of RLCM to compress the datum before it is embedded. In its algorithm, the proposed method engages Queue and Recursive Indexing. The algorithm encodes the data in a cyclic manner. In contrast to RLCM, the proposed method is a coding method as Huffman coding. This research uses publicly available image data to examine the proposed method. For all testing images, the proposed method has higher compression ratio than the Huffman coding.
