Morphology on color images



This work takes place in the context of Milena, the C++ generic image processing library of the Olena platformdeveloped at LRDE. Morphological algorithms are one of Milena's major assets. Yet few image processing libraries implement them even though they are very useful. Those algorithms require supremum and infimum operators, which don't exist by default for composite types like red-green-blue (RGB) pixels. We therefore propose the implementation of those operators for RGB values, along with a complete toolchain allowing morphological algorithms to work on color images.
