### Applying Image Filtering (Circular Convolution) in Frequency Domain

To filter an image we can: Use a 3x3, 5x5, 7x7, etc. filter, that is convolve the image and the filter in the space domain. Use a FFT on both the image and the filter, multiply them together in the ...

### How to Zero Pad in Order to Perform Filtering in the Fourier (Frequency) Domain?

Consider an $M\times N$ image $f$ and an $G \times K$ filter $h$. Given that convolution in the spatial domain corresponds to multiplication in the Fourier domain, then we can perform a convolution of ...
