The image files referenced in this lab can be accessed from the course website at: cronos.rutgers.edu/~lrr/ If you are a new Matlab user, try running the builtin demos. Just type demos at the Matlab prompt. 2 Exercise 1 – Intensity Transforms – Gray Scale Im ages As we learned in class, the simplest form of pointtopoint transformation is when the neigh borhood of each point is of size 1 x 1 (a single pixel). We call such transforms intensity or graylevel transforms. In this first exercise we investigate the use of an intensity transform on a grayscale image. (a) Read in the gray scale image lena.tif and display the image using the Matlab command imshow . The first transformation is to convert the image to its negative image using the imadjust command. (b) We will see later in this laboratory exercise that (on a normalized scale) intensity levels in the lower quarter of the range and intensity levels on the higher quarter of the range (i.e., normalized range from [0 0.25] and from [0.75 1]) are not prominent in this grayscale image, and hence we want to use an intensity transform to sharpen the image. Initially set the value of γ (the free variable in the intensity mapping function) to 1.0. Use imadjust to convert the range from [0.25 0.75] to the full range [0 1] and plot the resulting gray level image. What differences do you notice in the image, resulting from this intensity level transformation? (c) Set the value of γ to 2.0 and repeat the exercise of part (b). Plot the resulting gray level image. Is the image quality improved or deteriorated? In what sense is the change noted? 1 (d) Set the value of γ to 0.5 and repeat the exercise of part (b). Plot the resulting gray level image. Is the image quality improved or deteriorated? In what sense is the change noted? *************************************************************************** SOLUTION (a) The Matlab code for reading in lena.tif and displaying the original image is: lena=imread(’lena.tif’); figure(1);imshow(lena); The Matlab code for creating and displaying the negative of the lena image is: % Invert image to show negative gamma=1; lenaneg=imadjust(lena,[0 1],[1 0],gamma); figure(2);imshow(lenaneg); The negative image could also have been obtained using the imcomplement command from Matlab . Figure 1 shows the original grayscale image at the left and the negative at the right....
