Opening
gives the morphological opening of image with respect to the structuring element ker.
Opening
gives the opening with respect to a range r square.
  • Opening works with binary, grayscale and other images.
  • The structuring element ker is a matrix containing s and s.
  • Opening automatically pads structuring elements to have odd dimensions.
  • If multiple image channels are present, Opening operates on each of them separately.
Use morphological opening to extract objects larger than the structuring element:
