Laplacian Pyramid Toolbox

Matlab toolbox that implements the Laplacian pyramid (LP) decomposition and a new pseudo-inverse rec



View License

This toolbox contains Matlab files that implement the Laplacian pyramid (LP) decomposition [1] and the new reconstruction method in [2].

The main functions are LPD and LPR for LP decomposition and reconstruction, respectively. The script LPDEMO provides an example on how to use the main functions in the toolbox.

+ Can handle signals of any dimension
+ Contain several popular pyramid filters such as '9/7', '5/3' and the original 'Burt' filters
+ Have border handling

- Only work with signal size of power of 2

I tried it on an image with the size 401 x 401 and it doesn't work.
It falls after the Upsampling function which yields 402 x 402 image (Hence the subtraction won't work).

can you make suggestions as early as possible sir.....

thank you..

The toolbox is very useful and works very well.
However, I encountered an error when I tried to use filters other than the included '9/7', '5/3' and the original 'Burt' filters.
[h,g] = pfilters('sym8')
or any other filter supported by wfilters leads to an error in the file 'filtdn.m' in line 42 where the command
I{dim} = [ly-e1+1:n , 1:n , 1:e2];
cannot work since 'ly' is not defined anywhere

It helps a lot ,thanks.

Thanks, Minh. This will come in handy for my next research project.
