The purpose of this module is teach you how to write an image explorer sketch that can be used determine the coordinates and RGB color values of any pixel in an image by pointing to the pixel with a mouse. The sketch can also be used to determine the dimensions of the image.

Table of contents

Preface

This module is one in a collection of modules designed to teach you about the Processing open source programming environment.

Processing is a Java-based OOP programming environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions.

The purpose of this module is to teach you how to write an image explorer sketch that can be used determine the coordinates and RGB color values of any pixel inan image by pointing to the pixel with a mouse. The sketch can also be used to determine thedimensions of the image.

Viewing tip

I recommend that you open another copy of this module in a separate browser window and use the following links to easily find and view the imagesand listings while you are reading about them.

Images

  • Image 1 . Normal output.
  • Image 2 . Output for image too wide.
  • Image 3 . Output for image too tall.
  • Image 4 . Output produced by a common mathematical algorithm.

Listings

Preview

In this module, I will teach you how to write a Processing sketch that can be used to determine the following information by pointing to a locationin an image and pressing a mouse button:

  • Width and height of an image.
  • X and Y coordinates of the mouse pointer.
  • RGB color values for the pixel at the mouse pointer.

Normal output from the sketch

Normal output from this sketch is shown in the screen capture image in Image 1 . (Note that a screen capture image does not show the mouse pointer.)

Image 1. normal output.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
