CS 4476: Computer Vision
1. The assignment must be done in Python3. No other programming languages are allowed.
2. Fill your answers in the report PPT provided and submit a pdf version of it named like so FirstName_LastName_PS1.pdf on Gradescope. Please do not modify the layout of the boxes provided in
the report. Fit your answers within the space provided.
3. Please enter your code in the designated areas of the template Python files. Please do not add additional
functions/imports to the files. Points will be deducted for any changes to code/file names, use of static
paths and anything else that needs manual intervention to fix.
4. Please submit your code and output files in a zipped format, using the helper script
with your GT username as a command line argument (using –gt_username), to Gradescope. See the
command below. Please do not create subdirectories within the main directory. The .zip_dir_list.yml
file contains the required deliverable files, and will fail if all the deliverables are
not present in the root directory. Feel free to comment and uncomment them as you complete your
$ python –gt_username <your_gt_username>
5. For the implementation questions, make sure your code is bug-free and works out of the box. Please
be sure to submit all main and helper functions. Be sure to not include absolute paths. Points will be
deducted if your code does not run out of the box.
6. If plots are required, you must include them in your Gradescope report and your code must display
them when run. Points will be deducted for not following this protocol.
7. Ensure that you follow the instructions very carefully.
Note: There is no extra credit for this assignment. Students are expected to complete it entirely(100
points total: 50 Report + 50 Code).
Note that we will be using a new conda environment for this project!
1. Install Miniconda. It doesn’t matter whether you use Python 2 or 3 because we will create our own
environment that uses 3 anyways.
2. Open the terminal
(a) On Windows: open the installed Conda prompt to run the command.
(b) On MacOS: open a terminal window to run the command
(c) On Linux: open a terminal window to run the command
3. Navigate to the folder where you have the project

(c) > a = np.array([[11,22,33],[40,50,60],[77,88,99])
> b = a.reshape(-1)
(d) > f = np.random.randn(5,1)
> g = f[f>0]
(e) > x = np.zeros(10)+0.5
> y = 0.5*np.ones(len(x))
> z = x + y
(f) > a = np.arange(1,100)

1 Basic Numpy [12 points (3 each)]
Write a few lines of code to do each of the following. Copy and paste your code into the report.
1.1 Use numpy.random.rand to return the roll of a six-sided die over N trials.
1.2 Let y be the vector: y = np.array([11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66]). Use the reshape command to
form a new matrix z that looks like this: [[11,22],[33,44],[55,66]]
1.3 Use the numpy.max function to set x to the maximum value that occurs in z (above), and use the
numpy.where function to set r to the row number (0-indexed) it occurs in and c to the column
number (0-indexed) it occurs in.
1.4 Let v be the vector: v = np.array([1, 4, 7, 1, 2, 6, 8, 1, 9]). Set a new variable x to
be the number of 1’s in the vector v.
2 Array/Matrix Operations [20 points (4 each)]
Load the 100×100 matrix inputAPS1Q2.npy which is the matrix A. Fill the template functions in the
script to load inputAPS1Q2.npy and perform each of the following actions on A. Submit the
2.1 Plot all the intensities in A, sorted in decreasing value. Provide the plot in your report. (Note, in
this case we don’t care about the 2D structure of A, we only want to sort the list of all intensities.)
To ensure consistency, you may use the gray colormap option.
hint : Use matplotlib’s imshow and ensure to set the aspect appropriately
2.2 Display a histogram of A’s intensities with 20 bins. Again, we do not care about the 2D structure.
Provide the histogram in your report.
2.3 Create and return a new matrix X that consists of the bottom left quadrant of A. (Use function
prob_2_3 and return X.)
2.4 Create and return a new matrix Y, which is the same as A, but with A’s mean intensity value
subtracted from each pixel. (Use function prob_2_4 and return Y.)
2.5 Create and return a new matrix Z that represents a color image the same size as A, but with 3
channels to represent R, G and B values. Set the values to be red (i.e., R = 1, G = 0, B = 0)
wherever the intensity in A is greater than a threshold t = the average intensity in A, and black
everywhere else. (Use function prob_2_5 and return Z.)
3 Image Manipulations [36 points (6 each : 4 Code + 2 Report)]
The input color image inputPS1Q3.jpg has been provided. Fill the template functions in the script
to perform the following transformations. Avoid using loops. Submit the file Provide all the resultant images in your report.
Note: In every part, the image that is returned from your function must have integer values in the range [0,
255] i.e uint8 format.
3.1 Load the input color image and swap its red and green color channels. Return the output image.
(Use function prob_3_1 and return swapImg.)
3.2 Convert the input color image to a grayscale image. Return the grayscale image.
(Use function prob_3_2 and return grayImg.)
Perform each of the below transformations on the grayscale image produced in part 2 above. When
plotting them, make sure you use the gray colormap option.
3.3 Convert the grayscale image to its negative image, in which the lightest values appear dark and vice
versa. Return the negative image. (Use function prob_3_3 and return negativeImg.)
3.4 Map the grayscale image to its mirror image (flipping it left to right). Return the mirror image. (Use
function prob_3_4 and return mirrorImg.)
3.5 Average the grayscale image with its mirror image (typecast the image to float or double from uint8
to avoid overflow when adding). Return the averaged image. (Use function prob_3_5 and return
3.6 Create a matrix noise whose size is same as the grayscale image, containing random numbers in the
range [0, 255]. Add noise to the grayscale image, then clip the resulting image to have a maximum
value of 255. Return the clipped image and the noise matrix. (Use function prob_3_6 and return
noisyImg, noise)
Tips: Do the necessary typecasting (uint8 and double) when working with or displaying the images.
If you can’t find some functions in numpy (such as rgb2gray), you can write your own function. For example:
def rgb2gray(rgb):
return[…,:3], [0.2989, 0.5870, 0.1140])
4 Understanding Color [19 points]
4.1 The same color may look different under different lighting conditions. Images indoor.png and outdoor.png
are two photos of a same Rubik’s cube under different illuminances. Load the images and plot their
R, G, B channels separately as grayscale images using matplotlib’s imshow() (use gray colormap).
Then convert them into LAB color space using cv2.cvtColor() or skimage.color and plot the three
channels again. Include the plots in your report. (Use function prob_4_1) [points – 7 Report]
4.2 In the section below, we have explained the process behind translating the cubical colorspace of RGB
to the cylinder of hue, saturation, and value. Read through the explanation and fill in the template
function in to load inputPS1Q4.jpg, convert the image from RGB to HSV, and return the
final HSV image. Submit the final image to the report. You may use for loops for this question. You
are not allowed to use library function to do the conversion. [points – 7 Code + 5 Report]
Note: To ensure consistency, do the necessary typecasting (double) and transform the image to values
between [0,1] before performing the below operations.
So far we’ve been focusing on RGB and grayscale images. But there are other colorspaces out there too
we may want to play around with. Like Hue, Saturation, and Value (HSV).
Hue can be thought of as the base color of a pixel. Saturation is the intensity of the color compared to
white (the least saturated color). The Value is the perception of brightness of a pixel compared to black.
You can try out this demo to get a better feel for the differences between these two colorspaces.
Now, to be sure, there are lots of issues with this colorspace. But it’s still fun to play around with and
relatively easy to implement. The easiest component to calculate is the Value, it’s just the largest of the 3
RGB components:
V = max(R, G, B)
Next we can calculate Saturation. This is a measure of how much color is in the pixel compared to neutral
white/gray. Neutral colors have the same amount of each three color components, so to calculate saturation
we see how far the color is from being even across each component. First we find the minimum value
m = min(R, G, B)
Then we see how far apart the min and max are:
C = V − m
and the Saturation will be the ratio between the difference and how large the max is:
S = C/V
Except if R, G, and B are all 0. Because then V would be 0 and we don’t want to divide by that, so just
set the saturation 0 if that’s the case.
Finally, to calculate Hue we want to calculate how far around the color hexagon our target color is.
Figure 1: Color Hexagon
We start counting at Red. Each step to a point on the hexagon counts as 1 unit distance. The distance
between points is given by the relative ratios of the secondary colors. We can use the following formula from
H′ =

undef ined C = 0
if V = R
C + 2 if V = G
C + 4 if V = B
H =
6 + 1 if H’ < 0
There is no “correct” Hue if C = 0 because all of the channels are equal so the color is a shade of gray,
right in the center of the cylinder. However, for now let’s just set H = 0 if C = 0 because then your implementation will match ours. (Use function prob_4_2 and return HSV.)
5 Hybrid Images [13 points]
Figure 2: Hybrid images are created by filtering one image with a low-pass filter and another image with a
high-pass filter. The hybrid image is generated by adding the two filtered images together.
In this question, you will apply filters to images and use a low pass filter to create hybrid images (Oliva et
al., 2006). The input color images cat.bmp and dog.bmp have been provided. Fill in the template functions
in the script and submit this file. Provide all resultant images in your report.
5.1 Load the input color images. In this problem, you will need to convert the image values to floating
point values between 0 and 1. Then, complete the function my_conv2d to apply a 2d convolution
to an image using a given filter. You will use scipy.ndimage.convolve with the default parameters on each channel of the image. Then, in prob_5_1, use your my_conv2d to apply each of the
following filters to cat.bmp: Identity, Blur, Sobel, and Laplacian. These filters are given to you
as self.identity_filter, self.blur_filter, self.sobel_filter, and self.laplacian_filter.
Include the 4 filtered images in your report. [points – 4 code + 4 report]
5.2 Create a hybrid image from dog.bmp and cat.bmp by combining the low frequency of the dog image
with the high frequency content of the cat image. Do this in create_hybrid_image. You will use
your my_conv2d function with a Gaussian low pass filter given by self.gaussian_filter. Then,
in prob_5_2, use matplotlib’s imshow() to display your hybrid image. Additionally, use the given
vis_image_scales_numpy() function to generate a visualization of your hybrid image at different
scales. Include both your hybrid image and this visualization in the report. [points – 3 code + 2
