# 0.3 Pr0130-introduction to image processing algorithms  (Page 2/3)

 Page 2 / 3

(Instructions for writing an image explorer sketch were provided in Pr0120-Image Explorer .)

## Program output

Image 1 shows the raw image being displayed in an image explorer window. Note the red, green, and blue color component values and the coordinates of the pixel to which those colors belong.

Image 2 shows the modified image in an image explorer window. Once again, note the red, green, and blue colorcomponent values and the coordinates of the pixel to which those colors belong.

## The algorithm

The algorithm required to transform the image from Image 1 to Image 2 is:

• Set the blue color value for every pixel to zero.
• Invert the red and green color values for every pixel.

A color value is inverted by subtracting the color value from 255.

## Obvious that the blue color value is reduced to zero

By exploring the pixel colors at several different locations, it should be obvious to the student that the blue pixel value has been set to zero forevery pixel in the modified image.

## Color inversion is not quite so obvious

Deducing that the red and green colors in the output pixels are the inverse of the red and green colors in the input image isn't as straightforward.However, color inversion is one of the most common forms of image color manipulation, so a little research on the web should suffice to figure it out. I have also publishedseveral online tutorials that involve color inversion.

The implementation of the algorithm will be explained below.

## Will explain in fragments

This sketch consists of two classes, which are provided in Listing 4 and Listing 5 .

I will break the sketch down and explain it in fragments.

## The driver class named Pr0130a

The driver class named Pr0130a , which is shown in its entirety in Listing 4 , is almost exactly like the class that I explained in Pr0120-Image Explorer . Therefore, I won't repeat that explanation in this module.

## The runner class named Pr0130aRunner

The runner class named Pr0130aRunner is shown in Listing 5 . This class is only slightly different from the class that I explained in Pr0120-Image Explorer . Therefore, I will explain only those portions of the class that are different inthis module.

## The first difference

The first difference begins within the for loop shown in Listing 1 . Recall that in the original version in Pr0120-Image Explorer , the code in the for loop copied pixel colors from the input image to the output image taking the different widths of the images intoaccount.

This version is essentially the same except that in this version, the code inverts the red and green color values and sets the blue color value to zerobefore inserting the pixel color into the output image.

there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
