Subject: Filter type gaussian has problems for large values of std dev
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 611b
I'm using Perl version 5.10.0 on Ubuntu Linux. and Imager version 0.73 Large values of standard deviation don't work for $image->filter(type => 'gaussian', stddev = > $stddev). The image returned is gray. The maximum working stddev has sometimes been 6 and other times 20. Maybe it's dependent on the image? In any case, there is an upper limit to the standard deviation, and how is one to know that, and shouldn't an error string be available when the limit is reached? As a workaround, can one filter the same image N times to achieve a standard deviation sqrt(N) times greater? -John Thanks, John

I just tried some images with stddev set to 50 with the expected result - colour was preserved. These were large images (3264 x 2448) from my camera. I'd expect some sort of greying effect of a high strength blur on a lower resolution image simply because so many pixels are being averaged. If you have a particular image that isn't behaving the way you expect, please send me the image and the code you've written using Imager that mis-behaves, and I'll take a closer look at it.

Yes, but I'd expect the same greying effect. Tony

Closing since there was no response and the problem couldn't be reproduced. Tony
