I would like to use the roi functionality of JPEG2000 in imencode function. This functionality allows to compress some parts with a level of compression lower than the rest of the image. I don't find any documentation about this in OpenCV doc and I would like to if OpenCV can handle this.

Thank you in advance

PS : I use Opencv 2.4 (for nom) on Ubuntu OS

at the moment, it's simply not possible, to do this from opencv.

if you really need ths feature, you'll have to interact with the jasper lib directly.

After looking the jasper's FAQ, it seems that only the decoder can handle roi functionality.

Image compression is pretty new for me, do you know some algorithm that allow this functionality? I would like to compress some image with loss except in the roi that need to be lossless.

sorry, no idea about jasper.

can it be, you're wrong here in general ?

opencv is a computer-vision / machine-learning lib (and yes, it reads images, too), not a general purpose image manipulation one.

I use OpenCV because I do lot of processing on those images. The compression part is just the result step. This is why I was looking for openCV's solutions. Btw thank you for your answer
