Summary form only given. We present improvements to a general type of lossless, lossy, and refinement coding of bi-level images (Martins and Forchhammer, 1996). Loss is introduced by flipping pixels. The pixels are coded using arithmetic coding of conditional probabilities obtained using a template as is known from JBIG and proposed in JBIG-2 (Martins and Forchhammer). Our new state-of-the-art results are obtained using the more general free tree instead of a template. Also we introduce multiple refinement template coding. The lossy algorithm is analogous to the greedy `rate-distortion'-algorithm of Martins and Forchhammer but is based on the free tree
