I have a project that requires detecting and processing letters in a given input image. I am also new to subject of image processing. There are lots of subsubjects in image processing. I believe I don't have to learn all the concepts of image processing to achive my purpose.
Question above; how can I detect letters in a given input image? Note: I already know matlab. I need to do this by implementing algorithm, not by a built-in function.
I am gonna tell my thoughts. I want to write an application which takes an input image as an argument. If there is are English letters on that image (photo), it will detect them by circling each of the letters. I don't know which subject in digital image processing I must look at.
