Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Uses a nonmathematical and practical approach to describe the basics of digital image processing (DIP), explaining its history, evolution and current applications. Numerous before-and-after images demonstrate the results of performing diverse DIP operations. The accompanying disk contains an executable Windows program plus a number of images users can manipulate in order to see on screen the effects of various image processing routines.

From the Back Cover

Learn about state-of-the-art digital image processing without the complicated math and programming… You don’t have to be a preeminent computer scientist or engineer to get the most out of today’s digital image processing technology. Whether you’re working in medical imaging, machine vision, graphic arts, or just a hobbyist working at home, this book will get you up and running in no time, with all the technical know-how you need to perform sophisticated image processing operations. Designed for end users, as well as an introduction for system designers, developers, and technical managers, this book doesn’t bog you down in complex mathematical formulas or lines of programming code. Instead, in clear down-to-earth language supplemented with numerous example images and the ready-to-run digital image processing program on the enclosed disk, it schools you, step-by-step, in essential digital image processing concepts, principles, techniques, and technologies. Disk contains sample image files and a ready-to-run digital image processing program that lets you do as you learn
  • detailed step-by-step guides to the most commonly used operations, including references to real-world applications and implementations
  • hundreds of before and after images that help illustrate all the operations described
  • comprehensive coverage of current hardware and the best methods for acquiring, displaying, and processing digital images

    Format: Paperback
    If you want to start with and understand digital image processing from its basic, this is the right book. Without too much maths it gets you to the point of what can be done, and how it can be done. It helped me to achieve a basic understanding from the zero level.

    5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By calvinnme HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 22, 2005
    Format: Paperback
    This older book is an excellent gentle introduction to digital image processing for those who have not yet had calculus, or for those who want to understand the basics before taking on the more daunting task of reading and understanding something like Gonzales & Woods, which is the standard graduate image processing text. The book begins with the basics of the various color spaces and how images are perceived by the human vision system. From that point, the chapters are grouped into the types of image transformations. Formulas are explained either graphically or with very simple mathematical notation. Before and after pictures are provided for each transformation. In chapter five, the author goes into some introductory computer vision and object recognition techniques. The handling of morphological processing is exceptional. The chapter on image compression does a good basic job of getting its ideas across to the reader. However, only the most basic compression techniques are explained in detail such as truncation and Huffman coding. JPEG and motion compression are just verbally described, due to the introductory nature of this text. More recent compression methods such as those involving wavelets are omitted. Part four of the book, "Image Operation Studies", is effective at hammering home what was discussed in the first three parts of the book. In part four, the author describes the algorithmic implementation of 39 of the image transformations described in the book, with the resulting images. This makes for an excellent summary and review for the student. The software on the book's companion disk has long ago become obsolete, but the ideas presented in the book are clear and great for any beginner in the field.

    The book came as scheduled. I love the book because it simplified digital imaging away from the mathematical equations.
    I did not like the fact that it could not be shipped to my country of residence.
