Understanding the Parameters of the Bilateral Filter

Allow me to show you a snip from Szeliski's Computer Vision book on bilateral filter. I don't know how to interpret these kernel definitions: In the actual summation what values do the $k$ and $l$ ...

How to Calculate Gaussian Kernel for a Small Support Size?

How to calculate the values of Gaussian kernel? I think I understand the principle of it weighting the center pixel as the means, and those around it according to the $\sigma$ but what would each ...

What Is the Bilateral Filter Category: LPF, HPF, BPF or BSF?

I`m reading about Bilateral filter with images, I knew that it uses Gaussian filter (which is a LPF) as a domain filter plus a range filter and it is used to preserve edges(high freq component). Can ...

Comparison Between Guided Filter (Edge Preserving Filter) and Gaussian Filter

I am looking for a good example that showing the different between Guided and Gaussian Filters. The example need to show the benefit of Guided filter, (for example: preserving edge...). Could you give ...

How to Validate Bilateral Filter Implementation?

For this may be a X-Y question, I'm providing the full background story: I'm trying to test for the correctness for a fixed point implementation of bilateral filter written in C. My current approach ...
