Now in its fifth edition, John C. Russ's monumental image processing reference is an even more complete, modern, and hands-on tool than ever before. The Image Processing Handbook, Fifth Edition is fully updated and expanded to reflect the latest developments in the field. A companion CD-ROM to this edition is available and includes more than 200 images along with a set of Photoshop®-compatible plug-ins that implement many of the algorithms described in the book (for more information, visit www.reindeergraphics.com). Written by an expert with unequalled experience and authority, it offers clear guidance on how to create, select, and use the most appropriate algorithms for a specific application.
