Color image compression and decompression is achieved by either spatially and chromatically multiplexing three digitized color planes, such as RGB (Red-Green-Blue) (22), into a digital array representative of a single digitized spatially- and chromatically-multiplexed plane (32, 813f) through use of a data processor or through use of a multi-sensor CCD imaging device with a sensor offset (800), or, by use of a color imaging device, capturing an image directly into a single spatially-multiplexed image plane, for further compression, transmission and/or storage. A decoder (50, 807, 923) extracts, from the stored or transmitted image, data to restore each of the color planes. Specific demultiplexing techniques involve correlating information of other planes with the color plane to be demultiplexed. Various techniques of entropy reduction, smoothing and speckle reduction may be used together with standard digital color compression techniques.
