### Importance of Phase in FFT of an image

While processing digital images in the Fourier domain, mostly we exploit the amplitude and not the phase. This could be because the amplitude is much more structured and the amplitude spectrum reveals ...

### I'm confused about the notion of frequency when it comes to arbitrary data

In signal processing class we keep learning about how it's so useful to bring things into the frequency domain instead of the time or space domain but I'm very confused about what the motivation is or ...

### Why Frequency Domain conversion is Important in Digital Image Processing?

Any Image enhancement technique can be easily applied to the normal images. Still, most of the folks say that frequency domain conversion of the images can lead to better enhancement. Why do we need ...

### Compare phase and magnitude spectrum results of 2 Images [duplicate]

I have read that from Fourier transform we obtain magnitude and phase spectrum. The magnitude spectrum tells you how strong are the harmonics in a image and the phase spectrum tells where this ...

### Fourier Decomposition

Hello everyone have a look at this video of Fourier Decomposition of an image(otherwise you can also refer the image which shows few plots of different extracted waves from an image) . We also know ...

### Finding the Harmonics contained in an Image?

I am beginer in image processing. Any signal whether it is 1D,2D or any multidimensional signal can be represented using combination of number of sine and cosine wavesforms (harmonics). Similerly any ...

### what are frequencies in a digital image? [duplicate]

I don't completely understand the term " frequency" with respect to digital image processing. for 1D electrical signals , its pretty easy to understand , visually too. higher the frequency - more ...

### Frequency Spectrum of an image

I have been studying about Frequency Domain from many days but still i am not able to clear one of the confusion. We say that in frequency domain an image is represented as waves. What I am able to ...

### Is it possible to decompose an image into basis images using MATLAB?

I have read that: Using Fourier decomposition any arbitrary image can be represented as summation of orthogonal basis images. I want to see the basis images for any image say Lena or Cameraman, ...

### How we define frequency in an image? [duplicate]

How we define frequency in an image? Does the repetition of a single gray level defines the frequency?(Example: can a black(single color/constant region) background image be called high frequency ...

### Can you explain how to imagine frequency in 2D? I need to understand how the concept of frequency exists in images [duplicate]

The concept of frequency spectrum exists because it is possible to sum sines and cosines of various frequencies together to make any periodic signal. The frequencies of these individual sinusoids make ...

### What is the basic concept of Fourier transform

I use discrete Fourier transform for digital image processing purposes , but I don't understand basic concept behind it. For example : What information exists in frequency domain? What is ...
