  • 4. Introduction to Image Processing • An image is a 2-Dimensional function f(x,y) where x and y are spatial coordinates, and amplitude f at any pair of coordinates (x,y) is called the intensity or gray level of the image at that point. • When x,y, and f are finite and discrete we call it a digital image. • Digital image processing means processing/computing digital images using computational means such as using a digital computer.
