Now — the hottest algorithms for specialized image processing are right in your hands
With this accessible cookbook of algorithms, you'll gain access to the most wanted image-processing applications, including morphology, image restoration, and symbol recognition. Throughout these pages, you'll find real-life examples that clearly describe the latest techniques, saving you hours of lengthy mathematical calculations. And all code is also included on the website, so you can experiment with your own ideas and algorithms for organizing and searching image data sets.
This updated edition provides practical solutions so you can:
Program state-of-the-art image-processing capabilities into software
Find the steps for taking advantage of classifiers
Apply 2D vision methods in content-based searches
Perform edge detection, thinning, thresholding, and morphology
Link all the computers on your network into a large image-processing cluster
Program the GPU to do image-processing and vision tasks
Select the best method for searching through images

Source code could do with some updating but all in all easy enough to read and
I only started Image processing recently, so I can only talk for entry level information
from the book
If someone already understands the image processing well, they may understand them but not I. I would return the book if I hadn't spill my coffee on it accidently. Oh well. I am giving 2 stars because some introductory part (chap1) was actually helpful.
