linear_trans_colorlinear_trans_colorLinearTransColorLinearTransColorLinearTransColor performs an affine transformation of the color values of the multichannel image ImageImageImageImageimage and returns the result in ImageTransImageTransImageTransImageTransimageTrans. The affine transformation of the color values is described by the transformation matrix TransMatTransMatTransMatTransMattransMat. If n is the number of channels in ImageImageImageImageimage and m is the number of channels in ImageTransImageTransImageTransImageTransimageTrans, TransMatTransMatTransMatTransMattransMat is a homogeneous m × (n+1) matrix that is stored row by row. Homogeneous means that the left m × n submatrix of TransMatTransMatTransMatTransMattransMat describes a linear transformation of the color values, while the last column of TransMatTransMatTransMatTransMattransMat describes a constant offset of the color values. The transformation matrix is typically computed with gen_principal_comp_transgen_principal_comp_transGenPrincipalCompTransGenPrincipalCompTransGenPrincipalCompTrans. In particular, it is possible to project an image onto the first m principal components by selecting the first m × (n+1) values of the transformation returned by gen_principal_comp_transgen_principal_comp_transGenPrincipalCompTransGenPrincipalCompTransGenPrincipalCompTrans. The transformation can, however, also be specified directly. For example, a transformation from RGB to YIQ, which is described by the following transformation can be achieved by setting TransMatTransMatTransMatTransMattransMat to [0.299,0.587,0.114,0.0,0.599,-0.276,-0.324,127.5,0.214,-0.522,0.309,127.5] Here, it should be noted that the above transformation is unnormalized, i.e., the resulting color values can lie outside the range [0,255]. The transformation 'yiq'"yiq""yiq""yiq""yiq" in trans_from_rgbtrans_from_rgbTransFromRgbTransFromRgbTransFromRgb additionally scales the rows of the matrix (except for the constant offset) appropriately.

To avoid a loss of information, linear_trans_colorlinear_trans_colorLinearTransColorLinearTransColorLinearTransColor returns an image of type real. If a different image type is desired, the image can be transformed with convert_image_typeconvert_image_typeConvertImageTypeConvertImageTypeConvertImageType.


linear_trans_colorlinear_trans_colorLinearTransColorLinearTransColorLinearTransColor can be executed on OpenCL devices if the image ImageImageImageImageimage consists of nine channels or less and is transformed to an image of three channels or less. Since the calculations are done in single precision floating point, the results may differ from those calculated by the CPU.
