Calling Sequence



      sharp_image = Sharpen(image)

Inputs



      image - The input image to be sharpened. Assumed to be a 2D byte array.

Outputs



      sharp_image - The sharpened image.

Input Keywords



      KERNEL -- By default the image is convolved with this 3-by-3 Laplacian kernel:
          [ [-1, -1, -1], [-1, +8, -1], [-1, -1, -1] ]. You can pass in any kernel
          of odd width. The filtered image is added back to the original image to provide
          the sharpening effect.
      DISPLAY -- If this keyword is set a window is opened and the details of the sharpening
          process are displayed.

Output Keywords



      None.

Dependencies



      None.

Method



      This function is based on the Laplacian kernel sharpening method on pages 128-131
      of Digital Image Processing, 2nd Edition, Rafael C. Gonzalez and Richard E. Woods,
      ISBN 0-20-118075-8.

Example



      There is an example program at the end of this file.
