Paper Abstract

Aims: Designing of a filter which can separate out the target from background in a given image. Methods: The original gray image is down-sampled by rejecting every alternate pixel values between two columns and two rows. A 3-step down-sampling was done to avoid major information loss. A 3-step up-sampling was done by replicating the lower row and the right column from the down-sampled data matrix to obtain the original size of the matrix. The image matrix thus obtained was subtracted from the original image. Results: The iterative down-sampling and up-sampling matrix gives the background information. Subtraction from original image obtains the target. Thus filters the background.
