“Digital Image Processing” is now-a-days a demanding and interesting field. It is a core subject
for Electronics and Communication and Computer Engineering. On the other hand it is the interdis-
ciplinary subject that is a part of different branches of engineering. This shows the importance of the
But the deficiency of this area is that there are very few books available in the market for a general
Indian student. I have tried here to represent all the fundamentals of Digital Image Processing in an
Here we start the discussion with the chapter 1 that deals with
Fundamentals of Image Processing.
Here we will discuss some familiar examples of Image Processing, Components of Image Processing
System and Generation of Digital Image. Chapters 2 and 3 deal with
Image Enhancement Techniques
respectively. Image Enhancement is the most demanding field
and mostly applicable area of Image Processing.
In the next chapter, we discuss
. The image is degraded due to noise that is to be
restored at the receiver side by using different filtering methods. Till this chapter, we have discussed
the gray level image. In chapter 5, these concepts of
are explained for Color Image.
Next chapter deals with
Morphological Image Processing
. From this chapter onwards, we consider
the features and attributes of an Image. Chapter Registration deals with transformation of image at
different planes for different purposes. In next chapter, we discuss the
that is very
important and fundamental step of image processing. By the chapter
, we become
familiar with the data compression techniques that will help us to save the bandwidth and space.
