Overview

While most other image processing texts approach this subject from an engineering perspective, The Art of Image Processing with Java places image processing within the realm of both engineering and computer science students by emphasizing software design. Ideal for students studying computer science or software engineering, it clearly teaches them the fundamentals of image processing. Accompanied by rich illustrations that demonstrate the results of performing processing on well-known art pieces, the text builds an accessible mathematical foundation and includes extensive sample Java code. Each chapter provides exercises to help students master the material.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I was both surprised and intrigued by [the author’s] use of beautiful and historically significant artistic imagery for illustrations throughout the book. … In example after example, Hunt demonstrates how effective such imagery can be in illuminating the principles that he is trying to convey. … this book does an excellent job of covering much of colour theory, with clear descriptions and effective diagrams and illustrations … this book has an excellent structure, hitting most of the subjects inherent in the handling of digital images within a computer graphics context. … I would highly recommend The Art of Image Processing with Java to anyone wishing to obtain a broad and practical knowledge of the science of handling digital images. … I would recommend this book to any computer science faculty member desiring to create a second graphics course that could be introduced at the sophomore or junior level, prior to the 3-D computer graphics course.
—Donald H. House, Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, March 2012

I found the details fascinating. … the style of the book is friendly and it is easy to read. … a good [and] very basic introduction to image processing…

The Art of Image Processing with Java is a guide to using the common web application Java in filing and archiving vast amounts of digital photographs for later use or use in other applications. From processing digital images based on light, color, and more, Kenny Hunt gives a complete and comprehensive guide and overview of just what Jave can do with plenty of advanced techniques on editing and alterations as well as compression. The Art of Image Processing with Java is a strongly recommended guide for anyone who wants to use the application to its fullest.
