Can someone explain to me the steps included in digital image processing procedure? I know that the process includes three steps i.e.
Importing the image via image acquisition tools;
Analysing and manipulating the image;
Output in which result can be altered image or report that is based on image analysis.
Is there any other step included here?
As far as I know there are two types of image processing. Analog and digital image processing. The steps mentioned by most probably the general steps and not specific digital image processing steps.
Hey Dev. The steps included in digital image processing are
This is the first step of digital image processing. Image acquisition is as simple as giving an image that is already in digital form. This stage involves process like scaling etc.
The idea behind image enhancement technique is to bring out details that are obscured or may be to highlight specific features of interest in an image.
3. Image restoration
Image restoration deals with improving the appearance of an image. This technique is based on mathematical/ probabilistic models of image degradation.
Compression deals with reducing the storage space required to save an image or the bandwidth required to transmit it.
5. Morphological processing
This process deals with tools for extracting image components.
This process procedures partition of an image into its constituent parts or objects.
Roopa you have missed out two steps in between. They are color image processing and wavelets and multiresolution processing. These are very important steps. To know about color image processing, read http://www.academia.edu/9661119/Digital_Image_Processing_3rd_ed._Color_Image_Processing and for wavelets and multiresolution processing read http://www.cs.uoi.gr/~cnikou/Courses/Digital_Image_Processing/2011-2012/Chapter_07a_Wavelets_and%20_Multiresolution_(Background)_2spp.pdf.
