**DCT_CVIP**

**dct_cvip()** - performs block-wise discrete cosine transform.

## Contents

## SYNTAX

spect = dct_cvip(input_img, block_size)

Input Parameters include:

- input_img - The original image which can be grayscale or RGB

- block_size - Should be a power of 2 or [ ]. if empty, then functions finds the nearest power of 2 and zero pad the image, to that block size. Any other value smaller than image size will partiotion the image to windows of that block size and DCT will be calculated separately in each window.

Output parameters include:

- Spect - The discrete cosine transform of the input image.

## DESCRIPTION

This function computes the discrete cosine transform of the input image. The argument *block_size* is usually given empty brackets [] so that, the function handles the zero padding itself.Any other value for *block_size* results in dividing the area of the image into squares of size *block_size* and taking the Discrete Cosine transform of the small windows.

## EXAMPLE

Read image

input_img = imread('Butterfly.tif'); % Block size block_size = 256; % call function spect = dct_cvip( input_img, block_size ); % use abs to compute the magnitude (handling imaginary) and use log to brighten display S2 = log(1+abs(spect)); S2 = remap_cvip(S2); % Display input image figure;imshow(input_img);title('Input Image'); % Display Output image figure, imshow(S2,[]);title('Output DCT Image');
