Use Vision HDL Toolbox™ to implement an FPGA-based module for image sharpening.
Use blockproc to compute statistics from large images and then use that information to more accurately process the images blockwise. The blockproc function is well suited for applying an
Use Wiener deconvolution to deblur images. Wiener deconvolution can be useful when the point-spread function and noise level are either known or estimated.
Apply different Gaussian smoothing filters to images using imgaussfilt . Gaussian smoothing filters are commonly used to reduce noise.
Use the Lucy-Richardson algorithm to deblur images. It can be used effectively when the point-spread function PSF (blurring operator) is known, but little or no information is available
Deblur an image using blind deconvolution. The example illustrates the iterative nature of this operation, making two passes at deblurring the image using optional parameters.
Create filters using the fspecial function that can be used with imfilter. The fspecial function produces several kinds of predefined filters, in the form of correlation kernels. This
Use histogram equalization to adjust the contrast of a grayscale image. The original image has low contrast, with most pixel values in the middle of the intensity range. histeq produces an
Increase the contrast in a low-contrast grayscale image by remapping the data values to fill the entire available intensity range [0, 255].
Calculate the size distribution of snowflakes in an image by using granulometry. Granulometry determines the size distribution of objects in an image without explicitly segmenting
Several image enhancement approaches. Three functions are particularly suitable for contrast enhancement: imadjust , histeq , and adapthisteq . This example compares their use for
Plot the transformation curve for histogram equalization. histeq can return a 1-by-256 vector that shows, for each possible input value, the resulting output value. (The values in this
Specify gamma when adjusting contrast with the imadjust function. By default, imadjust uses a gamma value of 1, which means that it uses a linear mapping between intensity values in the
Use a guided filter to smooth an image, reducing noise, while preserving edges. The example uses two pictures of the same scene, one taken with a flash and the other without a flash. The version
Remove salt and pepper noise from an image using an averaging filter and a median filter to allow comparison of the results. These two types of filtering both set the value of the output pixel to
Use regularized deconvolution to deblur images. Regularized deconvolution can be used effectively when constraints are applied on the recovered image (e.g., smoothness) and limited
Filter a region of interest (ROI), using the roifilt2 function to specify the filter. roifilt2 enables you to specify your own function to operate on the ROI. This example uses the imadjust
Use watershed segmentation to separate touching objects in an image. The watershed transform is often applied to this problem. The watershed transform finds "catchment basins" and
Apply multiple box filters of varying sizes to an image using integral image filtering. Integral image is a useful image representation from which local image sums can be computed rapidly. A

Some basic image composition and enhancement techniques for use with multispectral data. It is often necessary to enhance multispectral radiance or reflectance data to create an image
Dilate an image using the imdilate function. The morphological dilation operation expands or thickens foreground objects in an image.
Detect a cell using edge detection and basic morphology. An object can be easily detected in an image if the object has sufficient contrast from the background. In this example, the cells are
Perform edge detection on a TIFF image by dividing the image into blocks. When working with large images, normal image processing techniques can sometimes break down. The images can either
