The quantization process is a main part of image compression to control visual quality and the bit rate of the image output. The JPEG quantization tables are obtained from a series of psychovisual experiments to determine a visual threshold. The visual threshold is useful in handling the intensity level of the colour image that can be perceived visually by the human visual system. This paper will investigate a psychovisual error threshold at DCT frequency on the grayscale image. The DCT coefficients are incremented one by one for each frequency order. Whereby, the contribution of DCT coefficients to the error reconstruction will be a primitive pyschovisual error. At certain threshold being set on this psychovisual error, the new quantization table can be generated. The experimental results show that the new quantization table from psychovisual error threshold for DCT basis functions gives better quality image at lower average bit length of Huffman code than standard JPEG image compression.
