Progressive image transmission is a mechanism that transmits the most significant portion of an image, followed by its less important parts. Applications of such a mechanism include browsing large image files on the Internet. We propose an adaptive mechanism, based on the characteristics of images. The mechanism use neighbor pixels to guess a target pixel value, without actually transmitting the target pixel. An error correction scheme is also designed to cope with a failure guessing. The prototype is tested on 1500 bit-mapped pictures of different categories. Preliminary results should that the transmission rate is lower than others, with reasonable PSNR values of the transmitted images.
