's symbolic architecture makes it possible to treat images just like any other form of expression—applying functions to them, displaying and inputting them in notebooks, and including them directly in programs. Mathematica
provides a streamlined collection of functions for basic image manipulation, fully integrated with more advanced processing and its overall language and interactive capabilities.
