# MeanShiftFilter

MeanShiftFilter[image,r,d]
replaces each pixel with the mean of the pixels in a range-r neighborhood and whose value is within a distance d.

MeanShiftFilter[array,r,d]
applies mean-shift filtering to a data array.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• MeanShiftFilter[image,r,d] finds the mean of the pixels in blocks centered on each pixel, taking into account only those pixels whose value is within a Euclidean distance d from the center pixel.
• MeanShiftFilter works with arbitrary 2D and 3D images, as well as data arrays of any rank.
• At the edges of an image, MeanShiftFilter uses smaller neighborhoods.
• MeanShiftFilter[image,{rrow,rcol},d] uses range rrow in height, and rcol in width.
• MeanShiftFilter[image,{rslice,rrow,rcol},d] uses range rslice in height, rrow in depth, and rcol in width.
• The following options can be given:
•  DistanceFunction EuclideanDistance how to compute the distance between values MaxIterations 1 maximum number of iterations to be performed
• For a complete list of possible settings for DistanceFunction, see the reference page for MeanShift.
• The possible range for the distance parameter d depends on the distance function as well as the dimension of the color space.
