A program needs to be written that is capable of simple image processing. All the images that are available for you to use, can be found on Blackboard in the Assignments section. They need to be downloaded to your account before you run your VB program. If you want to use your own images you can, providing they are 300 pixels by 300 pixels in size.
Features of your program
The user must be able to type in the path and name of an image file or browse for the file (jpg and bmp). When a filename has been entered the image must appear in a Picture Box on the form. The colour of each pixel in the image should then be inspected and stored in one or more arrays. Once the array(s) have been filled, all the image processing features on the rest of the form should be made available to the user.
Simple image processing
Each pixel in the image consists of the three colour components Red, Green and Blue. The user must have the facility to:-
1 Create a new image (based on the original image) in a second picture box where the user has control over the 3 colours used to recreate it. Provide the user with 3 scroll bars to control the amount of red, green and blue to be used.
2. Brighten or darken the image using another scroll bar.
3. Provide at least 3 options to flip or rotate the image in the second Picture Box
4. Go to any point in the original image using the mouse and find out the colour as well as the Red, Green and Blue components of any given pixel.
5. Carry out another image processing feature of your choice (not rotate or flip), e.g. turn black & white, blur image.
