This paper proposes an efficient method for the design of two-channel, quadrature mirror filter (QMF) bank for subband image coding. The choice of filter bank is important as it affects image quality as well as system design complexity. The design problem is formulated as weighted sum of reconstruction error in time domain and passband and stop-band energy of the low-pass analysis filter of the filter bank .The objective function is minimized directly, using nonlinear unconstrained method. Experimental results of the method on images show that the performance of the proposed method is better than that of the already existing methods. The impact of some filter characteristics, such as stopband attenuation, stopband edge, and filter length on the performance of the reconstructed images is also investigated.
