The notion of neighbor connectivity is discussed in most image processing textbooks. Specifically, what is the set of neighbors of a pixel? For example, a commonly-used neighborhood connectivity is 4-connected, where each pixel has four neighbors. The... read more >>

From the archives: All about pixel colors 7

When I started this blog in early 2006, one of my first series of articles was called "All About Pixel Colors." These articles discussed how MATLAB associates matrix values with specific screen pixel colors. The series talked about the two fundamental image display models (indexed and truecolor); the scaled... read more >>
