Some Random effects

  • Negative Image
Subtract 255 from the RGB image, to obtain negative image.
MATLAB CODE:
%Here the  I am subtracting 255 from R,G and B.
A=imread('person.jpg');
imshow(255-A);

Negative Image







  • Sine Wave

    First find the mid point of the RGB image.
    Convert the points from Cartesian to polar co_ordinates
    Find the sine value for the angle 'theta'
    Again convert the points to Cartesian co_ordinates

    SAMPLE CODE:
    x2=zeros([size(A,1) size(A,2)]);
    y2=zeros([size(A,1) size(A,2)]);
    for i=1:size(A,1)
        x=i-midx;
        for j=1:size(A,2)
    %Cartesian to Polar co-ordinates
               [theta1,rho1]=cart2pol(i,j-midy);
        
          
                  
            phi=sin(theta1);
          
    %Polar to Cartesian co-ordinates
            [l,m]=pol2cart(phi,rho1);
            x2(i,j)=ceil(l)+midx;
            y2(i,j)=ceil(m)+midy;
          
        end

          Let’s make some random rectangles from the image. 

MATLAB CODE:

A=imread('tulip2.jpg');
C=uint8(zeros(size(A)));
i=1; j=1;
col=0;
row=0;
m=1;n=1;
%change the rsz and csz value to obtain pieces in different sizes
rsz=15;
csz=36;

%change the tsz_row and tsz_col values to make some gaps between the pieces.

tsz_row=3;
tsz_col=5;



while ( i < size(A,1))
%check whether i is less than size of (A,1)


while(m+i+row < size(A,1)&& n+j+col < size(A,2))

    
        %size of the tiles varies depending upon the random number
        C(m+i:m+i+row,n+j:n+j+col,:)=A(i:i+row,j:j+col,:);
      
        m=ceil(rand(1)*tsz_row);
        n=ceil(rand(1)*tsz_col);
        col=ceil(rand(1)*csz);
        row=ceil(rand(1)*rsz);
        j=j+col;

Cone effect in MATLAB

The image shrinks towards the center, forming a cone effect. Here, I first found the mid point of the image, since the image expands from the center. Then the angle and the radius of the points are found by converting into polar co-ordinates from Cartesian.  The square root (radius * K) is obtained, where K  can be changed to make the image size differ.
                                        Again convert from polar to Cartesian and display the final image.
For more fun, try this effect with your own photography image .




MATLAB CODE:


A=imread('square.jpg');
B=uint8(zeros(size(A)));
figure,imshow(A);


%FIND THE MID VALUES
midx=ceil((size(A,1)+1)/2);
midy=ceil((size(A,2)+1)/2);


%CHANGE THE VALUE OF 'K' 
K=180;
x2=zeros([size(A,1) size(A,2)]);
y2=zeros([size(A,1) size(A,2)]);

    Glassy effect in MATLAB

    To obtain a glassy effect, define a window of size m by n. Obtain a random pixel value from the window matrix and add it with the current position value.


    MATLAB CODE:
    A=imread('aish.jpg');
    %WINDOW SIZE
    m=6;                                                                  
    n=7;
    Image=uint8(zeros([size(A,1)-m,size(A,2)-n,3]));

    for i=1:size(A,1)-m
        for j=1:size(A,2)-n

            mymask=A(i:i+m-1,j:j+n-1,:);
    %Select a pixel value from the neighborhood.
    x2=ceil(rand(1)*m);
    y2=ceil(rand(1)*n);
       
            Image(i,j,:)=mymask(x2,y2,:);
        end
    end

    figure,imshow(Image);
        We can change the matrix size and see the difference in the result.

      Oil Painting in MATLAB

      To obtain a painting-like effect , define a small window matrix of size m by n. Copy the original image pixel values into the matrix and find the histogram of each value. Find the maximum occurring pixel value and replace the current position with the maximum occurrence value.

      Swirl effect in MATLAB

      After reading a couple of image processing books, I tried to implement some Photoshop effects in MATLAB.  First, I tried to implement the twirl effect in MATLAB.


      The mid point of the image is stored in the variables ‘midx’ and ‘midy’.
      The angle and the radius for each point in the image are found by converting the co-ordinates from Cartesian to polar co-ordinates. 

       The effect can be obtained by using the following formula: 
      new[rho , theta] = old[rho , theta + rho /K] .

      By changing the value of K, the swirl can be increased or decreased.


      For more fun, try this effect with your own photography image.
