COLORMAP_GRADIENT

COLORMAP_GRADIENT

The COLORMAP_GRADIENT function maps an image into a specified luminance-based gradient. This function can be used to apply a “false” color to an image, based on image luminance levels.

Examples


The following example maps an entire image into a blue gradient:

; Read a TrueColor image:
file = FILEPATH('rose.jpg', SUBDIRECTORY = ['examples', 'data'])
IOPEN, file, rose1
; map the image into a blue gradient:
rose2 = COLORMAP_GRADIENT(rose1, 1)
IIMAGE, rose1, VIEW_GRID=[2,1], VIEW_TITLE='Original', $
   DIMENSIONS=[600,300], $
   WINDOW_TITLE='COLORMAP_GRADIENT Example', /NO_SAVEPROMPT
IIMAGE, rose2, /VIEW_NEXT, VIEW_TITLE='Blue Gradient'
; Increase the text size
ISETPROPERTY, 'text*', FONT_SIZE=40

The resulting images appear as follows:

Syntax


Result = COLORMAP_GRADIENT(Image[Gradient])

Return Value


Result is a 3-channel byte array of the same width and height as Image.

Arguments


Image

A 2D or 3D array of any basic type containing the input image with range [0-255]. A 2D array is treated as a grayscale image. A 3D array must contain RGB image data and be of the form [3,m,n].

Gradient

An optional scalar integer or [3, 256] byte array. If not provided, Gradient maps the image to a grayscale gradient. If a scalar integer is provided, Gradient maps the image to a color table specified by the scalar integer (For more information, see LOADCT). If a [3, 256] byte array is provided, Gradient maps the image into the RGB color table stored in this array.
