Our images have now found their way from the generation device over transport or storage media to the image processing and analysis software, in our case, IMAQ Vision. As defined in Chapter 1, the output of an image processing operation is still another image; this chapter, therefore, focuses on methods like image manipulation using look-up tables , filtering , morphology , and segmentation .
Here and in Chapter 5, I tried to provide exercises and examples without any additional hardware and software. When that is not possible, I specify exactly the type of hardware equipment and where to get additional software. Moreover, I keep as close as possible to the IMAQ Vision User Manual , which means that I use the same symbols and equations but also give more information and examples.
