||This will be a brief introduction to the
capabilities and techniques associated with a
new version of the image processing software
used in an introductory course at the University of
Washington. The software provides three
interfaces, intended roughly for beginning,
intermediate, and advanced users. The
first interface is "pixel calculator"
allowing direct manipulations of image pixels
using arithmetic expressions. The second
interface, the "Formula Page", provides
an executable list of image specifications.
The third interface is a Python shell that
is connected directly to a library of functions
that permit both scripting of the program and
extension of functionality.
I'll show examples of computing stereograms,
filtering with the Fourier transform, and
simple distance transforms.
