We are pleased to announce that the German 3rd edition of our book is finally available. Compared to the previous edition, the content has approximately doubled and we had to omit some of the technical reference material to meet the 800-page limit. We are grateful to our partners at Springer-Verlag for the excellent finishing, full color printing and (very important) for keeping the price at a VERY reasonably level! This publishing project has been ongoing since 2009 and we want to thank all our readers for their faith and patience. We hope that the new book finds good use and was worth the wait. Read more …
The plugin JAR files provided for the different book editions (https://sourceforge.net/projects/imagingbook/files/code/plugins/) are supposed to be downloaded and placed inside the ImageJ/plugins/ folder. If simply placed there, ImageJ should (after a restart) recognize the .jar file as a plugin container and show all plugins in the Plugins menu. However, this only works if the name of the .jar file contains at least one underscore character! All plugin archives were thus renamed tp BurgerBurgeXxx_plugins.jar. Users may either rename local files themselves or download a new copy.
Alternatively (e.g. to edit the plugin code), the plugin .jar archives may be expanded (unzipped) inside the plugins folder. NOTE: Make sure to expand in place (‘here’), i.e., without introducing an additional directory level! The chapter folders must show directly inside the plugins folder:
Mac users should be aware that the built-in Archive Utility always unzips to a new folder with the same name as the archive file. In this case, the contained book chapter folders must be moved up manually by one level (into the ImageJ/plugins/ folder).
Complete sets of test images are now available for the 3-volume Undergraduate Topics (UTiCS) book edition and the new German (3rd) edition.
For Chapter 6 of UTiCS Volume 3 (Advanced Methods) on “Fourier Shape Descriptors” animated video sequences are available illustrating the coarse-to-fine decomposition of 2D shapes.
The new German edition is scheduled for delivery in Mai 2015.
More good news! Our source code section has been completely restructured and ported to SourceForge at https://sourceforge.net/projects/imagingbook/
This repository can be used to browse the latest source code or download pre-packaged JAR files. Dedicated bundles are available for all English and German editions, with ImageJ plugins grouped by book chapter.
JavaDoc information for the common ‘imagingbook’ library is also available at http://svn.code.sf.net/p/imagingbook/code/doc/index.html
Please let us know in the case of any problems!
Good news for our German-speaking readers! After a long wait, the new German edition of our popular image processing book will finally be available in June 2015. This edition has been completely revised and comes with substantial additions, thereby almost doubling the original volume to about 800 pages. The ImageJ short reference and the source code collection had to be omitted from the printed version (both are available online at http://www.imagingbook.com) to allow for the additional material. The book is now printed in full color and most illustrations were adapted to make use of the new appearance. Some of the new material covers advanced topics that should make this edition useful as a textbook for both Bachelor and Master level courses. We hope our readers appreciate the added value and find the book more than ever useful for their work. The preface and complete table of contents can be found here.
Romuald Perrot has reported some errors in the SIFT chapter (Ch. 7) of “Principles of Digital Image Processing – Advanced Methods” (Volume 3). Corrections can be found in the Errata section.
Hello friends of imagingbook.com,
after severe technical problems with our previous (typo3-based) site we are happy to be online again with this new site. It features our latest textbook volume “Principles of Digital Image Processing — Advanced Methods” and the corresponding ImageJ source code. Note that the entire Java code has been restructured around a common library of methods (contained in imagingbook.jar) and a individual set of ImageJ plugins for each book edition.
