Introduction to Image Processing with MATLAB

  1. 1. Follow me @ : & linkedin/sriramemarose
  2. 2. Every technology comes from Nature:  Eye - Sensor to acquire photons  Brain - Processor to process photoelectric signals from eye
  3. 3. Step 1. Light(white light) falling on objects Step 2. Eye lens focuses the light on retina Step 3. Image formation on retina, and Step 4. Developing electric potential on retina (Photoelectric effect) Step 5. Optical nerves transmitting developed potentials to brain (Processor)
  4. 4. Optic nerves – Transmission medium Hey, I got potentials of X values (Temporal lobe) Yes, I know what does it mean (Frontal lobe) To frontal lobe, From Temporal lobe
  5. 5.  Different species absorbs different spectral wavelength  Which implies different sensors(eye) have different reception abilities
  6. 6.  Color of the images depends on the type photo receptors  Primary color images – RGB  Photoreceptor – Cones  Gray scale images (commonly known as black and white )  Photoreceptor - Rods
  7. 7.  Man made technology that mimics operation of an eye  Array of photoreceptors and film (to act as retina - cones and rods)  Lens to focus light from surrounding/objects on the photoreceptors (mimics Iris and eye lens)

  9. 9. Different types of images often used,  Color – RGB -> remember cones in eyes?  R –> 0-255  G –> 0-255  B –> 0-255  Grayscale -> remember rods in eyes?  0 – Pure black/white  1-254 – Shades of black and white(gray)  255 – Pure black/white  Boolean  0- Pure black/white  1- Pure white/black
  10. 10. Single pixel with respective RGB values RGB Image
  11. 11. Combination of RGB values of each pixel contributing to form an image
  12. 12. Pure black->0 Shades of black&white -> 1-254 White-> 255
  13. 13. Things to keep in mind,  Image -> 2 dimensional matrix of size(mxn)  Image processing -> Manipulating the values of each element of the matrix )1,1()1,1()0,1( )1,1()1,1()0,1( )1,0()1,0()0,0( ),( NMfMfMf Nfff Nfff yxf  From the above representation,  f is an image  f(0,0) -> single pixel of an image (similarly for all values of f(x,y)  f(0,0) = 0-255 for grayscale 0/1 for binary 0-255 for each of R,G and B
  14. 14. From the image given below, how specific color(say blue) can be extracted?
  15. 15. Algorithm:  Load an RGB image  Get the size(mxn) of the image  Create a new matrix of zeros of size mxn  Read the values of R,G,B in each pixel while traversing through every pixels of the image  Restore pixels with required color to 1 and rest to 0 to the newly created matrix  Display the newly created matrix and the resultant image would be the filtered image of specific color
  16. 16. Input image: Output image(Extracted blue objects): Snippet: c=imread('F:matlab sample images1.png'); [m,n,t]=size(c); tmp=zeros(m,n); for i=1:m for j=1:n if(c(i,j,1)==0 && c(i,j,2)==0 && c(i,j,3)==255) tmp(i,j)=1; end end end imshow(tmp);
  17. 17. From the image, count number of red objects,
  18. 18. Algorithm:  Load the image  Get the size of the image  Find appropriate threshold level for red color  Traverse through every pixel,  Replace pixels with red threshold to 1 and remaining pixels to 0  Find the objects with enclosed boundaries in the new image  Count the boundaries to know number of objects
  19. 19. Input image: Output image(Extracted red objects): Snippet: c=imread('F:matlab sample images1.png'); [m,n,t]=size(c); tmp=zeros(m,n); for i=1:m for j=1:n if(c(i,j,1)==255 && c(i,j,2)==0 && c(i,j,3)==0) tmp(i,j)=1; end end end imshow(tmp); ss=bwboundaries(tmp); num=length(ss); Output: num = 3
  20. 20.  Thresholding is used to segment an image by setting all pixels whose intensity values are above a threshold to a foreground value and all the remaining pixels to a background value.  The pixels are partitioned depending on their intensity value  Global Thresholding, g(x,y) = 0, if f(x,y)<=T g(x,y) = 1, if f(x,y)>T g(x,y) = a, if f(x,y)>T2 g(x,y) = b, if T1<f(x,y)<=T2 g(x,y) = c, if f(x,y)<=T1  Multiple thresholding,
  21. 21. From the given image, Find the total number of objects present?
  22. 22. Algorithm:  Load the image  Convert the image into grayscale(incase of an RGB image)  Fix a certain threshold level to be applied to the image  Convert the image into binary by applying the threshold level  Count the boundaries to count the number of objects
  23. 23. At 0.25 threshold At 0.5 threshold At 0.6 thresholdAt 0.75 threshold
  24. 24. Snippet: img=imread('F:matlab sample imagescolor.png'); img1=rgb2gray(img); Thresholdvalue=0.75; img2=im2bw(img1,Thresholdvalue); figure,imshow(img2); % to detect num of objects B=bwboundaries(img2); num=length(B);

  27. 27. Snippet: a=imread('F:matlab sample imagesMYWORDS.png'); im=rgb2gray(a); c=edge(im); se = strel('square',8); I= imdilate(c, se); img=imfill(I,'holes'); figure,imshow(img); [Ilabel num] = bwlabel(img); disp(num); Iprops = regionprops(Ilabel); Ibox = [Iprops.BoundingBox]; Ibox = reshape(Ibox,[4 num]); imshow(I) hold on; for cnt = 1:num rectangle('position',Ibox(:,cnt),'edgecolor','r'); end
  28. 28. 1. Write a program that solves the given equations calibration and measurement Hint: for manual calculation, to get values of x1,x2,y1 and y2 use imtool in matlab
  29. 29. Algorithm:  Load two images to be matched  Detect edges of both images  Traverse through each pixel and count number of black and white points in one image (total value)  Compare value of each pixels of both the images (matched value)  Find the match percentage,  Match percentage= ((matched value)/total value)*100)  if match percentage exceeds certain threshold(say 90%), display, ‘image matches’
  30. 30. Input Image: Output Image after edge detection: Note: This method works for identical images and can be used for finger print and IRIS matching
  31. 31. From the given image, find the nuts and washers based on its features
  32. 32. Algorithm:  Analyze the image  Look for detectable features of nuts/washers  Preprocess the image to enhance the detectable feature  Hint - Use morphological operations  Create a detector to detect the feature  Mark the detected results
  33. 33. Mathematical operation on two functions f and g, producing a third function that is a modified version of one of the original functions Example: • Feature detection Creating a convolution kernel for detecting edges: • Analyze the logic to detect edges • Choose a kernel with appropriate values to detect the lines • Create a sliding window for the convolution kernel • Slide the window through every pixel of the image
