1. A method of encoding an intra predicted residual block of an image for use in image or video compression, wherein the intra predicted residual block is associated with an intra prediction coding mode, the method comprising:
generating a plurality of residual error blocks from the intra predicted residual block, wherein the residual error blocks include residual data with different statistical characteristics from the residual data in the intra predicted residual block;
scanning and entropy coding each of the residual error blocks to produce a first plurality of bit streams and recording the lengths of each of the first plurality of bit streams;
scanning and entropy coding the intra predicted residual block to produce a second bit stream and recording the length of the second bit stream;
selecting the minimum length bit stream from the first plurality of bit streams and the second bit stream as the output coded bit stream of the intra predicted residual block.
