Statistical Operations
• Gray-level transformation
• Histogram equalization
• Multi-image operations

240-373 Image Processing

Histogram
• If the number of pixels at each gray level in an image is counted (may use the following code fragment)

for (row=0; row<rowmax; roww++)

for (col=0; col=colmax; col++)

{

count[image[row,col]]++;

}

240-373 Image Processing

Histogram
• The array “count” can be plotted to represent a “histogram” of the image as the number of pixels at particular gray level
• The histogram can yield useful information about the nature of the image. An image may be too bright or too dark.

Global Attenuation in Brightness
• To alter the brightness of an image by adding or subtracting all pixel values with a constant

for (row=0; row<rowmax; roww++)

for (col=0; col=colmax; col++)

{

image[row,col] += constant;

}

Thresholding
• Use:
• To remove the gray level trends in an image
• To make gray level more discrete
• To segment or split an image into distinct parts
• Operation:
• setting all gray levels below a certain level to “zero”, and above a certain level to a maximum brightness

240-373 Image Processing

Code for Thresholding

for (row=0; row<rowmax; roww++)

for (col=0; col=colmax; col++)

{

if (image[row,col] > threshold)

image[row,col] = MAX;

else

image[row,col] = MIN;

}

Thresholding Errors
• Rarely is it possible to identify a perfect gray level break, what we want to be background pixels become foreground or vice versa
• Type 1: not all pixels caught that should be included
• Type 2: some pixels caught should not be included in the group

240-373 Image Processing

Bunching (Quantizing)
• Use:
• to reduce the number of different gray level in an image
• to segment an image
• to remove unwanted gray level degradation
• Operation:
• Close gray levels are combined, thus removing unwanted variations in data

240-373 Image Processing

Bunching (Quantizing)
• Method 1: inspecting histogram and combining close group into single gray level
• Method 2: identifying a set of gray levels allowed in the final image, then changing the gray level in every pixel to its nearest allowed value

Bunching Code

for (row=0; row<rowmax; row++)

for (col=0; col<colmax; col++)

{

image[row,col] = bunchsize*((int)image[row,col]/bunchsize);

}

bunchsize = number of levels to be grouped into one

240-373 Image Processing

Splittings
• Use:
• to increase the different two groups of gray levels so that the contrast between segments compose of one group of the other is enhanced
• Operation:
• rounding the gray levels up if they are in the range and down if they are in another

240-373 Image Processing

Splitting Example
• The characters on a car number-plate are at gray level 98
• The background of the characters is at gray level 99
• Pushing 98 down to 80 and pushing 99 up to 120 will give the picture a better contrast around the number plate

Question: How to find a good splitting level?

240-373 Image Processing

Automatic Selection of Splitting Level
• Use:
• to find the best gray level for splitting--usually for thresholding to black and white
• Operation:
• Let

240-373 Image Processing

Automatic Selection of Splitting Level
• Let P=NxM = the number of pixels under consideration
• Let m(g) = mean gray level for only those pixels containing gray level between zero and g, i.e.

If the maximum number of gray level is G (G=0,…,G-1) then evaluate the following equation (T = splitting threshold)
