NAME

im_LabQ2Lab, im_Lab2LabQ, im_LabQ2LabS, im_LabS2LabQ, im_Lab2LabS, im_LabS2Lab - pack and unpack LABPACK images.

DESCRIPTION

These functions pack and unpack LAB images.

LabQ is Lab packed in to 4 unsigned chars, with the Coding field set to LABPACK. It counts as a coded type, since most operations will not give the correct result on an image of this type. This is the MARC image type. Bits are allocated as 10 for L and 11 for each of a and b. The first three bytes contain the 8 most significant bits of Lab respectively, the final byte has 2/3/3 bits (MSB on left) of Lab respectively.

im_LabQ2Lab() and im_Lab2LabQ() convert LABPACK images to three band float images, scaled to look sensible to humans. This is the most convenient LAB format for development work, but is rather slow.

im_LabQ2LabS() and im_LabS2LabQ() convert LABPACK to and from three band signed short images. L is shifted and masked to be in the range [0,32767], a and b are shifted and masked to lie in [-32768,32767]. This is the best computational LAB format, combining precision and speed. Programs such as conv(1X) and similarity(1X), which can operate directly on LABPACK images, unpack to LabS for computation.

 

RETURN VALUE

The functions return 0 on success and -1 on error.
