Image processing involves the manipulation or analysis of images by a digital device, usually a computer. Most techniques involve handling the image as a two-dimensional signal but then applying one-dimensional processing routines.
The image processing procedure
- Input - The input portion refers to uploading an image to a hard drive, either from a digital camera, the Web, or physical image via scanner.
- Processing - The image is usually enhanced, compressed or analyzed scientifically to find patterns.
- Output - The output portion means to print the image or save it for later use.
