A valuable learning aid
I just completed a semester of digital image processing where this was the course textbook. of the myriad textbooks i have used over the years, this one is definitely at the top of my list in terms of its clarity and organization. i ended up reading at least two thirds of this textbook, and the way that the authors present the material makes it very clear in most cases. i came away with the sense that the authors expended a great deal of effort in illustrating and explaining the concepts - more so than many textbooks i have encountered, especially those at the graduate engineering level. my only criticism is that certain parts of chapters 7 and 8 seemed a bit too extensive for an introductory image processing text; however, they were still good chapters and so i don't think that it warrants a deduction of a star in my rating. i highly recommend this text if you need to take an image processing course.
