This project contains a few examples of basic image processing algorithms.

Here I blurred an image by taking the FFT of a filter and of the image itself and multiplying them together, then I took the inverse transform to get the original image.
The following is an image of the fft of the gaussian used for the
following images, with the

This method simply convolves the image with a Gaussian filter directly, which produces similar results to convolving the FFT of the image with the FFT of a Gaussian filter. Note: I did not follow the hint in order to more accurately show the equivalence of the two techniques. The reason they both have the same effect is that multiplication in the Fourier space is equivalent to convolution in the image space. | ||

I generated a "ghost" effect in an image by overlaying a partially transparent black and white version of the "ghost" with the original background image. I also blurred the images a little to make it look more "ghosty". | ||
