     Compression for color image is now necessary for transmission and storage in the data bases since the color gives a pleasing nature and natural for any object, so three composite techniques based color image compression is implemented to achieve image with high compression, no loss in original image, better performance and good image quality. These techniques are composite stationary wavelet technique (S), composite wavelet technique (W) and composite multi-wavelet technique (M). For the high energy sub-band of the 3rd  level of each composite transform in each composite technique, the compression parameters are calculated. The best composite transform among the 27 types is the three levels of multi-wavelet transform (MMM) in M technique which has the highest values of energy (En) and compression ratio (CR) and least values of bit per pixel (bpp), time (T) and rate distortion )R(D)).  Also the values of the compression parameters of the color image are nearly the same as the average values of the compression parameters of the three bands of the same image.
