I'm pretty new to Image Processing and am using MatLab. I have an problem were I take an image of light passing trough an set of optical fibers (bundled together) and one were I pass laser energy trough the same bundle of fibers to burn the image of these fibers onto paper. I then try to match these two. Up to now I just basicly imported both into photoshop and rotated, scaled and resized by hand to match them. However I am looking for an automated method in Matlab as I'm also doing different analysis on these pictures in matlab. So I'm looking for an automated method to find the rotation, scale an movement difference of both images. I tried a lot of different things using mostly different tools from the matlab imaging processing toolbox (SURF, BRISK, FAST) without success. Also with different optimizations of the image from just the basic matlab imadjust to changing to hue scale, contrast changes, brightness, denoising. (i have higher resolution available) Is there anyone who can send me in the right direction?
