Digital Image Compositing Fundamentals is an introductory title covering concepts central to digital imagery and digital image compositing using software packages such as Adobe Photoshop or the open source GIMP software, which is used for this book because it is free for commercial use. This book builds on the fundamental concepts of pixels, color depth and layers, and gets more advanced as chapters progress, covering pixel transparency using the alpha channel, pixel blending using Porter-Duff blending and transfer modes, and digital image file formats and key factors regarding a data footprint optimization work process. What Youll Learn: What are the most common memes in digital imaging What comprises a digital image compositing pipeline What are the concepts behind digital imaging How to install and use GIMP 2.8 or 2.9 What are and how to use the concepts behind color depth and image optimization Audience: This book is for those new to image compositing, editing. Ideal for web developers, game developers who need to learn these kinds of fundamentals quickly and effectively.

This book investigates the history of writing as a cultural practice in a variety of contexts and periods. It analyses the rituals and practices determining intimate or ordinary writing as well as bureaucratic and religious writing. From the inscribed images of pre-literate societies, to the democratization of writing in the modern era, access to writing technology and its public and private uses are examined. In ten studies, presented by leading historians of scribal culture from seven countries, the book investigates the uses of writing in non-alphabetical as well as alphabetical script, in societies ranging from Native America and ancient Korea to modern Europe. The authors emphasise the material characteristics of writing, and in so doing they pose questions about the definition of writing itself. Drawing on expertise in various disciplines, they give an up-to-date account of the current state of knowledge in a field at the forefront of Book History. Martyn Lyons is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of New South Wales, Australia. He has published many books and articles on the history of reading and writing in Europe and Australia including A History of Reading & Writing in the Western World (Palgrave, 2010) and The Writing Culture of Ordinary People in Europe, c.1860-c.1920 (2013). He has previously published 4 titles with Palgrave Macmillan. Rita Marquilhas is Associate Professor in General & Romance Linguistics at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, and chief investigator on the Postscriptum Project - A Digital Archive of Ordinary Writings in Early Modern Portugal and Spain. She is the author of several articles on the social history of language.
This book introduces the classical and modern image reconstruction technologies. It covers topics in two-dimensional (2D) parallel-beam and fan-beam imaging, three-dimensional (3D) parallel ray, parallel plane, and cone-beam imaging. Both analytical and iterative methods are presented. The applications in X-ray CT, SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography), PET (positron emission tomography), and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) are discussed. Contemporary research results in exact region-of-interest (ROI) reconstruction with truncated projections, Katsevichs cone-beam filtered backprojection algorithm, and reconstruction with highly under-sampled data are included. The last chapter of the book is devoted to the techniques of using a fast analytical algorithm to reconstruct an image that is equivalent to an iterative reconstruction. These techniques are the authors most recent research results. This book is intended for students, engineers, and researchers who are interested in medical image reconstruction. Written in a non-mathematical way, this book provides an easy access to modern mathematical methods in medical imaging. Gengsheng Lawrence Zeng , Weber State University, Odgen, US

Deep learning is providing exciting solutions for medical image analysis problems and is seen as a key method for future applications. This book gives a clear understanding of the principles and methods of neural network and deep learning concepts, showing how the algorithms that integrate deep learning as a core component have been applied to medical image detection, segmentation and registration, and computer-aided analysis, using a wide variety of application areas. Deep Learning for Medical Image Analysis is a great learning resource for academic and industry researchers in medical imaging analysis, and for graduate students taking courses on machine learning and deep learning for computer vision and medical image computing and analysis. Covers common research problems in medical image analysis and their challenges Describes deep learning methods and the theories behind approaches for medical image analysis Teaches how algorithms are applied to a broad range of application areas, including Chest X-ray, breast CAD, lung and chest, microscopy and pathology, etc. Includes a Foreword written by Nicholas Ayache
Written during the years 1905 to 1912, this evocative orchestral triptych expresses the national characters of three countries. Ibéria is scored with Spanish castanets and tambourines. It is accompanied by Gigues, a moody tribute to England, and Rondprintemps, a celebration of spring in the French countryside.
A reflection is an afterthought. While things are happening, we only think about the here and now. It´s only afterwards that we have the opportunity to rethink, analyse, consider and REFLECT. The author George Manus has through all his life reflected over large and small. This have already resulted in two books in this genre, the first, REFLECTIONS I - in words and pictures, and the second, REFLECTIONS II - in words and proverbs. This third book got the title REFLECTIONS III - in words and fantasy images, as many of the reflections/stories are related to fantasy. The images are supplied by the Danish architect and visual artist Jan Arnts pictorial series FANTASIES. The book contains no less than 52 reflections /stories, where the author among others treats subjects like LIGHT and SHADOWS, WITH MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL and FEELING OF GUILT... Yes, even a TYPEWRITER is taken with loving care. All are reflections /stories which can only make you wiser. Happy reading. Revised 2nd edition published in 2018 George Manus was born in England 14.05.39. His mother was Ida Nikoline Lindebrække from Norway and his English father George Bernardes. His parents divorced and George grew up, after the Second World War, as the stepson of war hero Max Manus in Norway. He got the name Manus but was never adopted. All his professional life he was engaged in the Max Manus companies and leader of same for about 40 years. Throughout his adult life, he has thought about EVERYTHING, making notes along the way, as a basis for the books he knew he would write upon retirement. George Manus has fulfilled his dreams and as of today has written several books. In his authorship one can sense the cosmopolitan, which isn't random. He has experienced a lot, lived abroad and for the last fifteen years been firmly ensconced in the South of Spain. Homepage: https://george-manus.jimdo.com George Manus ble født i England 14.05.39. Hans mor var Ida Nikoline Lindebrække fra Norge og hans engelske far George Bernardes. Foreldrene ble skilt og George vokste, etter annen verdenskrig, opp som stesønn av krigshelten Max Manus i Norge. Han fikk navnet Manus, men ble aldri adoptert. I hele sitt yrkesaktive liv var han engasjert i Max Manus firmaene, og i nærmere 40 år leder av disse. Han har gjennom hele sitt voksne liv fundert over ALT og gjort seg notater underveis, som en studie for de bøker som han visste at han på sitt otium ville gi seg i kast med. George Manus har innfridd sine drømmer, og har til dags dato skrevet flere bøker. I hans forfatterskap kan man merke at det er en kosmopolitt som skriver, noe som ikke er tilfeldig. Han har opplevd mye, bodd i utlandet og de siste femten år vært fast forankret i Syd Spania. Hjemmeside: https://george-manus.jimdo.com
