Specify scales, resize, and/or define focal objects within images.

procimg(image, resize = NULL, rotate = NULL, scaledist = NULL,
  outline = FALSE, reclass = NULL, smooth = FALSE, iterations = 1L,
  col = "red", plotnew = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

image

(required) image data. Either a single image array, or a number of images stored in a list. Preferably the result of getimg().

resize

an integer specifying a percentage for resizing images, if so desired. E.g. 50 to half the size of an image, 200 to double it.

rotate

an integer specifying the angle of image rotation, in degrees. Images are rotated around the centre, and linearly interpolated.

scaledist

an integer, or numeric vector equal in length to the number of images, specifying the length of the scale in the image(s). Image(s) will then be presented, and the user asked to select either end of the scale corresponding to the input value.

outline

interactively specify the focal object in an image by clicking around its outline. The xy-coordinates of the resulting closed polygon are saved as an attribute, for use in generating a masking layer & separating animals/plants from backgrounds in further analyses. This is particularly useful when backgrounds are complex, such as in natural settings.

reclass

interactively specify an area on a colour-classified image that is to be reclassified as the numeric value provided. e.g. when reclass = 1, the user will be asked to select a polygon on the image, within which all colour-category values will be changes to 1.

smooth

should the polygon specified when outline = TRUE be smoothed using Chaikin's corner-cuting algorithm? Defaults to FALSE.

iterations

the number of smoothing iterations, when smooth = TRUE. Defaults to 1.

col

the color of the marker points and/or line, when using interactive options.

plotnew

should plots be opened in a new window? Defaults to FALSE.

...

additional graphical parameters. Also see par().

Value

an image, or list of images, for use in further pavo functions.

Examples

if (FALSE) { # Single image papilio <- getimg(system.file("testdata/images/papilio.png", package = "pavo")) papilio <- procimg(papilio, scaledist = 10) # Assign individual scales to each image, after slightly reducing their size. snakes <- getimg(system.file("testdata/images/snakes", package = "pavo")) snakes <- procimg(snakes, scaledist = c(10, 14), resize = 90) }
