These procedures are usually carried out by modifying pixel values, performing some operations on them, or on their local neighborhood as well. By definition, image-enhancement operations are used to improve important image details. Enhancement operations include noise reduction, smoothing, and edge enhancement. On the other hand, image correction attempts to restore a damaged image. In OpenCV, the imgproc module contains functions for image processing.

In this chapter, we will cover:

  • Image filtering. This includes image smoothing, ...
