Image processing is the process of creating a new image from an existing image, typically simplifying or enhancing the content in some way. It is a type of digital signal processing and is not concerned with understanding the content of an image. A given computer vision system may require image processing to be applied to raw input, e.g. pre-processing images.

Examples of image processing include:

  • Normalizing photometric properties of the image, such as brightness or color.
  • Cropping the bounds of the image, such as centering an object in a photograph.
  • Removing digital noise from an image, such as digital artifacts from low light levels.
