filter types

boundary conditions.

- Write down a 3x3 filter that returns a positive value if the average value of the 4-adjacent neighbors is less than the center and a negative value otherwise
- Write down a filter that will compute the gradient in the x-direction:
- gradx(y,x) = im(y,x+1)-im(y,x) for each x, y

Teases away fast vs. slow changes in the image.

This change of basis has a special name…

- had crazy idea (1807):
- Any periodic function can be rewritten as a weighted sum of sines and cosines of different frequencies.
- Don’t believe it?
- Neither did Lagrange, Laplace, Poisson and other big wigs
- Not translated into English until 1878!

- But it’s true!
- called Fourier Series

- Our building block:
- Add enough of them to get any signal f(x) you want!
- How many degrees of freedom?
- What does each control?
- Which one encodes the coarse vs. fine structure of the signal?

- We want to understand the frequency w of our signal. So, let’s reparametrize the signal by w instead of x:

- For every w from 0 to inf, F(w) holds the amplitude A and phase f of the corresponding sine
- How can F hold both? Using complex numbers.

We can always go back:

- example : g(t) = sin(2pf t) + (1/3)sin(2p(3f) t)

- example : g(t) = sin(2pf t) + (1/3)sin(2p(3f) t)

- example : g(t) = sin(2pf t) + (1/3)sin(2p(3f) t)

- Usually, frequency is more interesting than the phase

in Matlab, check out: imagesc(log(abs(fftshift(fft2(im)))));

The Fourier transform of the convolution of two functions is the product of their Fourier transforms

Convolution in spatial domain is equivalent to multiplication in frequency domain!

Inverse FFT

Slide: Hoiem

- Filtering with fft
- Displaying with fft

im = double(imread(‘…'))/255;

im = rgb2gray(im); % “im” should be a gray-scale floating point image

[imh, imw] = size(im);

hs = 50; % filter half-size

fil = fspecial('gaussian', hs*2+1, 10);

fftsize = 1024; % should be order of 2 (for speed) and include padding

im_fft = fft2(im, fftsize, fftsize); % 1) fft im with padding

fil_fft = fft2(fil, fftsize, fftsize); % 2) fft fil, pad to same size as image

im_fil_fft = im_fft .* fil_fft; % 3) multiply fft images

im_fil = ifft2(im_fil_fft); % 4) inverse fft2

im_fil = im_fil(1+hs:size(im,1)+hs, 1+hs:size(im, 2)+hs); % 5) remove padding

High-pass / band-pass:

smoothed – original

- The gradient direction is given by:
- how does this relate to the direction of the edge?

- The edge strength is given by the gradient magnitude

- The gradient of an image:
- The gradient points in the direction of most rapid change in intensity

- Consider a single row or column of the image
- Plotting intensity as a function of position gives a signal

How to compute a derivative?

Where is the edge?

Look for peaks in

- This saves us one operation:

Laplacian of Gaussian

Block-based Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)

- The first coefficient B(0,0) is the DC component, the average intensity
- The top-left coeffs represent low frequencies, the bottom right – high frequencies

- DCT enables image compression by concentrating most image information in the low frequencies
- Lose unimportant image info (high frequencies) by cutting B(u,v) at bottom right
- The decoder computes the inverse DCT – IDCT

- Sometimes it makes sense to think of images and filtering in the frequency domain
- Fourier analysis

- Can be faster to filter using FFT for large images (N logN vs. N2 for auto-correlation)
- Images are mostly smooth
- Basis for compression

- Remember to low-pass before sampling

Frequency domain can be useful for

Analysis
