construction, storage, and rendering
Before getting into the programming details, it will be useful to review the concept of how images are constructed Cheap Stanley Johnson Shirt , stored, transported, and rendered in Java (and in most modern computers for that matter).
An array of colored dots - pixels
A modern computer image, at the point where it is presented (rendered) for human consumption Cheap Luke Kennard Shirt , usually consists of a rectangular array of closely spaced colored dots. Ideally, the dots are so small and so close together that the human eye cannot distinguish them individually. This causes them to run together and appear to represent continuous color.
Image files
The pixels are typically stored and transported in files, and are then extracted from the files and displayed on a computer screen or sheet of paper for human consumption.
There are a fairly large number of formats for storing the pixels in a file. Different file formats have advantages and disadvantages in terms of compression, size Cheap Rick Mahorn Shirt , reproduction quality, etc.
Not interested in file formats
This series of lessons will not be concerned about file formats. We will be concerned with what to do with the pixels once they have been extracted from the file. The driver program that I will provide can read gif files and jpg files, and possibly other file formats as well.
Will pick up at the extraction point for raw pixels
We will initially become interested in the pixels at the point where they have been extracted from the file and exist in the form of a one-dimensional array of type int. We will convert that array into a three-dimensional array that is better suited for processing. Once we understand the conversion process, our attention will shift to the three-dimensional array containing pixel data. The image-processing programs that we will write will receive raw pixel data in the form of a three-dimensional array.
A grid of colored pixels
Each three-dimensional array object will represent one image consisting of a grid of colored pixels. When rendered Cheap Grant Long Shirt , the pixels in the grid will be arranged in rows and columns. One of the dimensions of the array will represent rows. A second dimension will represent columns. The third dimension will represent the color (and transparency) of the pixel.
Now back to the fundamentals
A pixel in a modern computer image is represented by four unsigned 8-bit bytes of data. Three of those four bytes represent the colors red, green, and blue. The fourth byte, often referred to as the alpha byte Cheap Jerry Stackhouse Shirt , represents transparency. I will have more to say about the alpha byte and transparency later.
Mixing the primary colors red, green, and blue
Specific colors are created by mixing different amount of red, green Cheap Bill Laimbeer Shirt , and blue. That is to say, when the program needs to cause the color orange to be displayed on the screen, it mixes together the correct amounts of red, green Cheap Grant Hill Shirt , and blue to produce orange.
The range of a color
Each unsigned eight-bit color byte can contain 256 different values ranging from 0 to 255 inclusive. If the value of the red byte is 0, for example, no red color is added into the mix to produce the overall color for that pixel. If the value of the red byte is 255, the maximum possible amount of red is added into the mix to produce the overall color for that pixel. The same is true for blue and green as well.
Black and white pixels
If all three of the color pixels have a value of 0 Cheap Christian Laettner Shirt , the color of that pixel is black. If all three of the color pixels have a value of 255, the color of that pixel is white. If all three of the pixels have the same value somewhere between 0 and 255, the color of the pixel is some shade of gray.
