floyd, halftone, hysteresis - create 1-bit images by dithering
fb/floyd [ input ]
fb/halftone screen [ input ]
fb/hysteresis low high [ input ]
Floyd reads a grey-scale input file (default standard input), and reduces it to one bit
per pixel using Floyd-Steinberg error-diffusion dither, as improved by Ulichney. The
resulting TYPE=bitmap picture file is written to standard output.
Ulichney's algorithm involves randomly varying the Floyd-Steinberg diffusion coefficients.
As the random number generator is seeded from the clock, floyd may produce different out-
put if rerun on the same input.
Halftone reduces grey-scale images to one bit per pixel using ordered dither. The screen
argument is the name of a file containing a dither matrix. Halftone searches for screens
Hysteresis creates one-bit-per-pixel images by thresholding with hysteresis. Any value in
the input image less than low is mapped to zero. Any input value less than high is mapped
to zero if any of its eight neighbors is less than low. If low and high are equal, this
is just an ordinary thresholding operation.
Hysteresis makes a useful edge-detection operator if used on a high-pass filtered image.
