HistogramEqualizeCommand Class

Summary

Linearizes the number of pixels, in an image, based on the specified color space. This can be used to bring out the detail in dark areas of an image. This function is useful for pre-processing images for the purpose of improving barcode recognition results.

Syntax
C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public class HistogramEqualizeCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class HistogramEqualizeCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTHistogramEqualizeCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class HistogramEqualizeCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class HistogramEqualizeCommand : public RasterCommand   

Remarks
  • Previously this class only equalized the number of pixels per gray level, using a gray level representation of the image. This functionality is now obtained by passing HistogramEqualizeType.Gray for the Type property.
  • For the best results, set Type to HistogramEqualizeType.Yuv
  • This class can process the whole image or a region of the image.
  • This class supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
  • This command supports signed/unsigned data images.

Example

Run the HistogramEqualizeCommand on an image and apply histogram equalization with YUV color space.
