Posted on 2004-09-10
Last Modified: 2009-12-16

I am new to java, i am making a simple edge detection program in java which takes a black and white striped jpg file. The aim of the program is that after reading the file from the disk, it  detects the black stripes from the white. The out put image need not be shown

I want to know which classes can be used for edge detection and how? I will appreciate your help in this regard.

should i resize the image before i work on it, or leave it at its original size (400 x 500)? would this effect the detection?
