Image Processing, an asset to Data Preservation!

There are an enormous number of images are available with different formats for daily use or storing data. With different formats, images are incompetent to use to any other software/formats as because of changes in the primary properties and corrective considerations. As for example, RAW images cannot be used to any other formats without changing its native properties. And, for this, there is much software for image conversions and image processing is available which is capable of converting and process images to various formats which can be used by any user for various purposes.

For any user, that deals with clump images in various formats.They face problems like:
1) The different format images.
2) they occupy a large space.
3) sometimes are Unreadable to any software.
4) Loss due to compression.
5) Raw Images.

To get rid of this problem and work effortlessly in with images, Image Processing is an important process. With this image Processing, images can be converted to required format like PDF, PNG, TIFF, Raw image format and much more which in turn will become e productive in many ways like taking lesser space, readable and can be store the information of the image in the database with easy retrievals.

The process of Image Processing includes:

Image Restoration: The motive of image restoration is to “undo”, “remunerate” defects which are corrupt images in one way or other.This degradation is in forms like noise, blurs, miss focus, raw images, low pixels, image tightening etc.There are many possible ways to get precaution and cure of this degradation like using various algorithms and noise removal processes to improve the quality of images.

Image Enhancement: It the is the process of making images modified which can make the results acceptable to display for further uses or analyze the image for data extraction form the image.This is the process without which the image information cannot be extracted utterly.Examples of Image Enhancement includes sharpening, brightening, denoise it, saturate image etc.

Information Extraction: It is the function of extracting structured data from unstructured various documents.It usually includes natural language processing for activities done by human entities. The information that can be fetched from documents includes the date, time, type of image, text information in the form of images etc.

To make any image work on any software Image Processings and conversions are needed. Image conversion process includes various subtypes and these subtypes have their own unique functioning.
· Image Editing
· Raster to Vector processing
· Image Masking
· ClipPath service.
The main purpose of this processing and conversion is to improve the quality of images.The better the Image, the better the output.

Benefits of Image Processing/Conversion:
⦁ Formats are maintained.
⦁ Turnaround Time is increased
⦁ Easy storage and easy retrievals.
⦁ Important features such as edges can be extracted from images which can be used in industry.
⦁ Images can be sorted automatically by the content present in them.
⦁ unrecognizable features can be made prominent.
⦁ Images can be given more sharpness and better visual appearance.
⦁ Errors can be rectified.
⦁ Cost effective and productive.
⦁ Compactible and systematic.
