ImageAdd

ImageAdd[image, x]
adds an amount x to each channel value in image.

ImageAdd[image1, image2]
gives an image in which each pixel is the sum of the corresponding pixels in and .

DetailsDetails

  • The image returned by ImageAdd[image, ...] has the same dimensions as image.
  • If the image dimensions are different, ImageAdd[image1, image2] adds at the center of .
  • If or is a single-channel image, its values are added to the values in each channel of the other image in ImageAdd[image1, image2].
  • If and are both multichannel images, the values in each channel are added separately.
  • In ImageAdd[image, x], the number x is normally in the range 0 to 1.
  • In ImageAdd[image, x], x can be a number, a color, or a list of color channel values.
  • ImageAdd[image, x] gives an image with the same underlying data type as image, clipping or truncating values if necessary.
  • ImageAdd[image1, image2] gives an image with the largest type of either or , clipping or truncating values if necessary.
  • For binary images, ImageAdd effectively finds the logical OR of pixel values.
  • ImageAdd works with Image3D objects.
