Summary

In this chapter, we saw what images are and how are they interpreted by a computer. Then we looked at the basics of image processing and its various applications in medicine, security/surveillance, and social media. Further, two image processing libraries, pillow and scikit-image, were introduced. We saw how we could perform basic operations such as reading/writing an image, converting the image between color spaces, and finally, we ended with how to draw some basic geometrical figures using scikit-image. This chapter forms the foundation of the chapters that follow.

In the next chapter, we will look at some more complex image processing algorithms, such as edge detection, and also some commonly used filters.
