MedianCommand Class

Changes the color of each pixel in an image to the median color of pixels in its neighborhood. This is similar to the AverageCommand command, but it is used for noise reduction, rather than a blur effect.
public class MedianCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class MedianCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTMedianCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class MedianCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class MedianCommand : public RasterCommand   
  • You control the effect by specifying the size of the neighborhood that is used for calculating the median value. For 8x8, 8 in the Dimension property or pass the value 8 for the dimension parameter of the Constructor.
  • This command 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.
  • If the image has a region, this command works only on the region. If the image does not have a region, this command works on the entire image.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
  • This command supports signed/unsigned data images.

For more information, refer to Removing Noise.


Run the MedianCommand on an image and applies an median filter.
