John Russ' book on image processing was never intended to be a textbook on how to understand and write .

John Russ' book on image processing was never intended to be a textbook on how to understand and write your own image processing algorithms, as you might believe by looking through the table of contents. It does cover just about everything you would see in such a textbook, but from a user's standpoint of these operations, not as an author of image processing code who needs to understand the algorithms behind these operations.

This handbook avoids dense mathematics, instead using new practical examples that better convey essential principles of image processing

This handbook avoids dense mathematics, instead using new practical examples that better convey essential principles of image processing. This approach is more useful to develop readers? grasp of how and why to apply processing techniques and ultimately process the mathematical foundations behind them.

Using extensive new illustrations and diagrams, it offers a logically organized exploration of the important relationship between 2D images and the 3D structures they reveal.

Materials Science and Engineering Department North Carolina State University Raleigh, North Carolina. CRC PR ESS. Boca Raton London New York Washington, . All the image processing and the creation of the resulting gures included in this book were performed on an Apple Macintosh® computer. Many of the images were acquired directly from various microscopes and other sources using color or monochrome video cameras and digitized directly into the computer.

Using extensive new illustrations and diagrams, it offers a logically organized exploration of the important relationship between two-dimensional images and the three-dimensional structures they reveal.

John C. Russ - Forensic Uses of Digital Imaging.

Thresholding an image allows selecting features of interest (Russ, 2007). The aim of this study is to develop a new technique based on thresholding colour corrected images to asses the browning in minimally processed lettuce. A thresholding to extract pixels of brown colour was applied to each corrected image. Images were first transferred from their original RGB representation to HSB (hue, saturation and brightness) where values range from 0-255 (Zhou, 2004;Russ, 2007).

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. 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.

What’s new in the Fifth Edition?

· A new chapter on the human visual process that explains which visual cues elicit a response from the viewer

· Description of the latest hardware and software for image acquisition and printing, reflecting the proliferation of the digital camera

· New material on multichannel images, including a major section on principal components analysis

· Expanded sections on deconvolution, extended dynamic range images, and image enlargement and interpolation

· More than 600 new and revised figures and illustrations for a total of more than 2000 illustrations

· 20% more references to the most up-to-date literature

Written in a relaxed and reader-friendly style, The Image Processing Handbook, Fifth Edition guides you through the myriad tools available for image processing and helps you understand how to select and apply each one.

Over the years I have done a lot of image processing in unusual areas, analyzing laser speckle is an example. This book has proven very useful in introducing image processing concepts to make my use of image processing software more well founded. I don't write code but the book covers such a broad range of techniques that it would be a good place to start for someone who is trying to create software but is not an image processing professional. It shows a variety of approaches to a given problem. I have an earlier edition but have discussed the present edition with my son to whom I gave a copy.

The book covers every aspect of video in a technical atmosphere. It provides great insight and understanding in the field of video. I use this book as a reference and refresher when I work with video.

Excellent product

This book is one that I'm out of my depth on. It's extremely detailed and a must have for those into image processing. If only I had more time to investigate it.

John Russ' book on image processing was never intended to be a textbook on how to understand and write your own image processing algorithms, as you might believe by looking through the table of contents. It does cover just about everything you would see in such a textbook, but from a user's standpoint of these operations, not as an author of image processing code who needs to understand the algorithms behind these operations. Instead, Russ explains all of the operations, their value in various applications, and provides many illustrations showing before and after pictures of what each operation does. There are no algorithms, pseudocode, or mathematics in this book.

The jewel in the crown of this book is the companion CD. It contains over 200 Photoshop plug-ins for performing the operations mentioned in this book. These plug-ins work on 8-bit grayscale and 24 bit RGB images and are divided into the categories of image adjustment, color manipulation, image math, boolean operations, Fourier processing, morphological operations, neighborhood processing, distance-map operations, thresholding, feature measurement, calibration, stereology, and surface rendering. The bad news is that you have to obtain the CD separately. If you need to understand the detailed mathematics behind such operations, you might consult Digital Image Processing by Gonzalez and Woods, and then come back to this book for the tools to accomplish the operations explained in that book. The updates to this fifth edition include an additional chapter on human vision and how it ties into image processing. Also, the author has updated his sections on image acquisition hardware and software to describe the latest tools available. Finally, the topic of tomographic imaging has been expanded and given its own chapter and the chapter on 3-D image acquisition has been deleted.

This is an excellent book on image processing from a systems engineering and user standpoint. You will be disappointed if you expect to learn the algorithms behind the techniques demonstrated in this book.

This, the fifth edition of this industry standard reference book on image processing has been significantly expanded. There are some 600 new and revised images. A major feature of the new edition is to describe the new advances that have come about in hardware for image capture and printing. This includes both new versions of traditional equipment and new emerging technologies. The text has been expanded in areas like deconvolution, extended-dynamic-range images and multichannel imaging including principal-components analysis.

In general this book does not cover the background mathematics that enables image processing. Those are left to specialty books on the subject. Instead this book is intended to be used in conjunction with hands-on equipment where the reader is encouraged to experiment with different methods to determine what is needed for the particular job.

While suitable for use as a text, this book is really a handbook for technical users. The book is more oriented to what the various tools availavle to help actually do.

I am a biologist with a little background in math. Using this book and matlab I could quickly implement basic feature recognition tools to analyze microscope images. The book focuses on concepts and explains them in intuitive language rather than in mathematical terms. Overall, it worked perfectly for me, but could be over-simplying for people with technical background.
I bought this book thinking I would find useful equations illustrated with examples. That was a mistake. The book is more an introduction to concepts in image processing than a handbook.

I would recommend it to users or beginners in image processing who want to familiarize themselves with image processing concepts. The content is light and accessible.

However I would definitely not recommend this book for experts, researchers or engineers.
