  • IMAGE_BOUNDARY, a MATLAB library which reports the pixels which form the boundary between the black and white regions of a simple image.
  • IMAGE_CONTRAST, a MATLAB program which applies image processing techniques to increase the contrast in an image.

    IMAGE_DECIMATE, a MATLAB library which compresses an image by dropping the even rows and columns of data.

    IMAGE_DENOISE, a MATLAB program which applies image processing techniques to remove noise from an image.

    IMAGE_DIFFUSE, a MATLAB library which uses diffusion to smooth out an image.

    IMAGE_DOUBLE, a MATLAB library which doubles the height and width of an image by repeating each row and column.

    IMAGE_EDGE, a MATLAB library which demonstrates a simple procedure for edge detection in images.
