max_image — Calculate the maximum of two images pixel by pixel.
max_image calculates the maximum of the images Image1 and Image2 (pixel by pixel). The result is stored in the image ImageMax. The resulting image has the same pixel type as the input image. If several (pairs of) images are processed in one call, every i-th image from Image1 is compared to the i-th image from Image2. Thus the number of images in both input parameters must be the same. An output image is generated for every input pair.
max_image can be executed on an OpenCL device for byte, int1, int2, uint2, int4, real, direction, and cyclic images.
The two input images must be of the same type and size.
Result image(s) by the maximization.

If the parameter values are correct the operator max_image returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE). The behavior in case of empty input (no input images available) is set via the operator set_system(::'no_object_result',<Result>:). If necessary an exception is raised.
