Image Processing Tutorial for Beginners: Includes object detection, filtering, and more!

Perfect for the beginner, this demo illustrates simple object detection (segmentation, feature extraction), measurement, and filtering. Requires the Image Processing Toolbox (IPT) because it demonstrates some functions supplied by that toolbox, plus it uses the “coins” demo image supplied with that toolbox.
