GMASCL

GMASCL

Name


      GMASCL

Purpose



      This is a utility routine to perform basic gray-level pixel
      transformations of images. I think of it as BYTSCL on steroids.
      It is similar to IMADJUST in _Digital Image Processing with MATLAB_
      by Gonzales, Wood, and Eddins. It performs a log scaling of the
      image array.

Calling Sequence



      scaledImage = GMASCL(image)

Arguments



      image: The image to be scaled. Written for 2D images, but arrays
                      of any size are treated alike.

Keywords



      GAMMA: The exponent in a power-law transformation (image^gamma). A gamma
                      value of 1 results in a linear distribution of values between
                      OMIN and OMAX. Gamma values less than 1 map darker image values
                      into a wider range of output values, and Gamma values
                      greater than 1 maps lighter image values into a wider
                      range of output values. The gamma value is constrained to
                      be greater than 1.0e-6.
      MAX: Any value in the input image greater than this value is
                      set to this value before scaling.
      MIN: Any value in the input image less than this value is
                      set to this value before scaling.
      NEGATIVE: If set, the "negative" of the result is returned.
      OMAX: The output image is scaled between OMIN and OMAX. The
                      default value is 255.
      OMIN: The output image is scaled between OMIN and OMAX. The
                      default value is 0.

Return Value



      scaledImage: The output, scaled into the range OMIN to OMAX. A byte array.

Common Blocks


      None.

Examples



      LoadCT, 0 ; Gray-scale colors.
      image = cgDemoData(11) ; Load image.
      TV, GmaScl(image, Min=30, Max=100) ; Similar to BytScl.
      TV, GmaScl(image, /Negative) ; Produce negative image.
      power = Shift(ALog(Abs(FFT(image,-1))), 124, 124) ; Create power spectrum.
      TV, GmaScl(power, Gamma=2.5) ; View power specturm with gamma correction.
      TV, GmaScl(power, Gamma=2.5, /Negative) ; Reverse power spectrum.

Restrictions



    Requires cgScaleVector from the Coyote Library:
