A postprocessing algorithm is proposed to reduce the blocking artifacts of Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) decompressed images. The reconstructed images from JPEG compression produce noticeable image degradation near the block boundaries, in particular for highly compressed images, because each block is transformed and quantized independently. The blocking effects are classified into three types of noises in this paper: grid noise, staircase noise, and corner outlier. The proposed postprocessing algorithm, which consists of three stages, reduces these blocking artifacts efficiently. A comparison study between the proposed algorithm and other postprocessing algorithms is made by computer simulation with several JPEG images
