CSC1401Manipulating Pictures


What we have done to date

What we have done to date

  • We have modified pictures by writing on top of them

    • Using Turtles and using Graphics

    • Drawing lines, shapes and text, as well as inserting a picture into another picture


What would be nice to do

What would be nice to do

  • Changing colors on the pictures

    • Red-eye reduction

    • Blending pictures

    • Doing other fancy Adobe Photoshop-like transformations

  • But this would be almost impossible to do by simply drawing on top of the existing picture


The goal

The Goal

  • Develop an easier approach to modifying our pictures by changing the pictures themselves rather than writing on top of them


Digital pictures

Digital Pictures

  • Represented by pixels

    • With a red, green, and blue value stored for each pixel

  • Stored in .jpg (JPEG) files

    • International standard

    • With lossy compression

      • Lossy means not all data is stored

        • But what is lost isn’t that important

      • Compression means made smaller

  • Other formats for storing digital pictures are GIF and BMP


Manipulating a picture

Manipulating a Picture

  • To manipulate a picture we need to manipulate the pixels that make up the picture

    • Change the red, green, or blue values at the pixel

  • Pixel is a class created at Georgia Tech

    • Each pixel object has a red, green, and blue value


Pictures have lots of pixels

Pictures have lots of Pixels

  • How can we refer to each pixel?

    • pixel1, pixel2, pixel3, pixel4, pixel5, …

  • Do we really want to name each one?

    • On a 640 x 480 picture, there are 640 x 480 = 307,200 pixels


How do we change a pixel

How do we change a Pixel?

Pixel first;

first = stevepicture.getPixel(10,120);

// 10 refers to the row and 120 to the columnfirst.setColor(Color.black);

/* The book writes the code as:

stevepicture.getPixel(10,100).setColor(Color.black);

*/

Note that if you have already shown the picture, by invoking:

stevepicture.show();

You can cause the picture to be updated by:

stevepicture.repaint();


Pictures have lots of pixels1

Pictures have lots of Pixels

  • How do we deal with lots of data of the same type?

    • Use an array


What is an array

What is an Array?

  • Storage for a sequence of items

    • Of the same type

  • You can access items by using an index

  • The index starts at 0

    • The first item is at index 0

    • The last item is at index (length – 1)

  • Arrays know their length (have a public length field)

    • arrayObj.length

But how does an array help us

But how does an array help us?

  • If we wish to change lots of pictures, we can use a loop!


Recall from alice

Recall from Alice

In this example, each time through the loop, the bunny hopped

Note that the index variable changes from 0 to 1 to 2 to … each time through the loop. And we can take advantage of that when working with arrays!


In java

In Java

  • Use a loop to access an array of pixels

  • The first time through the loop we access pixelArray[0]

  • The second time through the loop we access pixelArray[1]


What data does a picture object have

What Data does a Picture Object Have?

  • A picture object has an array of pixel objects

    • That it read from the .JPG file

  • It knows the picture width

    pictureObj.getWidth()

  • It knows the picture height

    pictureObj.getHeight()

  • It knows how to return an array of pixels

    Pixel[] pixelArray = pictureObj.getPixels()


Pixel objects

Pixel Objects

  • Each pixel has a red, green, and blue value

    • getRed(), getGreen(), getBlue()

    • setRed(v), setGreen(v), setBlue(v)

  • Each pixel knows the location it was in the picture object

    • getX(), getY()

  • You can also get and set the color at the pixel

    • getColor(), setColor(color)


Turning all of the pixels in our picture to red using a loop

Turning all of the pixels in our picture to red – using a loop

  • Notes:

  • We have created a counter that starts at 0, and goes up to the number of pixels in the picture

  • Each pixel has its color set to red!

  • How would this code have looked had it been written as a method inside of the Picture class?


A note on color

A note on Color

  • You can either set the red, green and blue amounts individually, or all together using mypixel.setColor(someColor)

  • You can create a color object by giving the red, green, and blue values for it

    Color colorObj = new Color(255,10,125);


Predefined colors

Predefined Colors

  • The Color class has defined class constants for many colors

    • Color.red, Color.green, Color.blue, Color.black, Color.white, Color.yellow, Color.gray, Color.orange, Color.pink, Color.cyan, Color.magenta

    • Or you can use all uppercase names

      • Color.RED, Color.BLUE, Color.BLACK, …


Getting and setting pixel colors

Getting and Setting Pixel Colors

  • To get a pixel’s color as a color object

    Color color1 = pixelObj.getColor();

    int red = color1.getRed();

    int green = color1.getGreen();

    int blue = color1.getBlue();

  • To set a pixel’s color using a new color object

    red = 20;

    green = 30;

    blue = 100;

    Color color2 = new Color(red,green,blue);

    pixelObj.setColor(color2);


Changing pixel colors

Changing Pixel Colors

  • There are two ways to change the color of a pixel in a picture

    • Set the red, green, and blue values individually

      • pixelObj.setRed(value),

      • pixelObj.setGreen(value),

      • pixelObj.setBlue(value),

    • Or set the color

      • pixelObj.setColor(colorObj)

  • But, you won’t see any change in the picture

    • Until you ask it to repaint: pictureObj.repaint();

    • Or you invoke the show method


Summary

Summary

  • Pictures have pixels

    • You can change the picture by changing the color of the pixels

  • Arrays let you store and retrieve values of the same type using an index

  • You can ask a picture for it’s width, height, and an array of pixels

  • You can get and set the color of a pixel
