View Full Version : Gimp Edge detection - Neon Mode?

January 18th, 2010, 06:10 PM
Hi All,

I have been using gimp to test some simple image processing methods. One step of which involves edge detection. Having tweaked the method I am now translating the gimp process into my actual code.

However at one stage I used a mode in gimp called Neon (Filter->Edge-Detection->Neon).

Does anyone happen to know anything about this Mode. Like how it works out as resolution independent?

The plug-in source code is a bit of a nightmare so any pointers are very very greatly appreciated.

Cheers for any help.

p.s. O I realize the output is asymmetric and not true edge detection in case anyone worries about that.
