Image Processing Applications
Image Processing is seen and used in different fields of human activities. For example, in medicine Image Processing is applied for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Processing of images obtained from satellites is widespread task in the space sector. Also, Image Processing is used in the entertainment, e.g. shooting movies.
Finally, it is well-known that Image Processing is needed in almost all computer vision applications.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What is Image Processing?
A: Any form of signal processing for which the input data is an image or a set of images is called by Image Processing.
Q: What is Image Denoising?
A: Image Denoising is the process of removing noise from an image. There are well-known denoising techniques, such as total variation denoising, neighborhood filters, non-local means and so on.
Q: What is Image Deblurring?
A: Usually taking photos, we want the recorded image to be a faithful representation of the scene that we see – but every image is more or less blurry. There are different causes of blurry photos. So, for examples, an image that is out of focus will appear blurry. Also blur appears when the subject moves while the shutter is open, or the camera moves while the shutter is open. Image Deblurring is the process of removing blur from an image. Thus, Image Deblurring is fundamental in making pictures sharp and useful. Many deblurring methods were designed. For example, Wiener filters, Richardson–Lucy deconvolution, Tikhonov regularization and so on.
Q: What is Image Compression?
A: Image Compression is an application of data compression that transforms and encodes the original image with few bits. The purpose of image compression is to minimize the redundancy of the image and to store or transmit data in an efficient form. Image compression may be lossy or lossless. Lossless compression is preferred for medical imaging, technical drawings and so. Lossy compression methods, especially when used at low bit rates, introduce compression artifacts. Lossy methods are especially convenient for natural images such as photographs. In applications minor (sometimes imperceptible) loss of fidelity is acceptable to achieve a substantial reduction in bit rate.
Q: What is Morphological Image Processing?
A: Morphological Image Processing is a collection of non-linear operations related to the shape or morphology of features in an image. Morphological operations rely only on the relative ordering of pixel values, not on their numerical values, and therefore are especially suited to the processing of binary images.
Q: What is Image Recognition?
A: By Image Recognition we call the process of identifying and detecting an object or a feature in a digital image or video. This concept is used in many applications like systems for factory automation, toll booth monitoring, and security surveillance. Typical image recognition algorithms include:
- Optical character recognition, i.e. the electronic conversion of images of typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text;
- Pattern and gradient matching;
- Face recognition, i.e. automatic identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source;
- License plate matching;
- Scene change detection.
Q: What is Image Segmentation?
A: Image Segmentation is the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple segments (sets of pixels, also known as superpixels). The goal of segmentation is to simplify and/or change the representation of an image into something that is more meaningful and easier to analyze. In other words, Image Segmentation is the task of finding groups of pixels that “go together”. In statistics, this problem is known as cluster analysis and is a widely studied area with hundreds of different algorithms.
Q: What is Image Pansharpened?
A: Pansharpening is a process of merging high-resolution panchromatic and lower resolution multispectral imagery to create a single high-resolution color image. This technique often is used in satellite image processing to increase image quality. In this case, pansharpening produces a high-resolution color image from three, four or more low-resolution multispectral satellite bands plus a corresponding high-resolution panchromatic bands.
Q: What is Image Super Resolution?
A: Superresolution is a technique that enhance the resolution of an imaging system beyond their sensor and optics limits. Super-resolution can combine set of low resolution images to obtain a single image of higher resolution. Also there is known algorighms which produce high resolution image using single image.
