Digital image processing is the use of computer algorithms to create, process, communicate, and display digital images. Digital image processing algorithms can be used to:
The following images illustrate a few of these examples:
Effective techniques for processing digital images include using algorithms and tools that provide a comprehensive environment for data analysis, visualization, and algorithm development.
