Differences Between the DIP and DIPUM Books


  • Digital Image Processing is a book on fundamentals.

  • Digital Image Processing Using MATLAB is a book on the software implementation of those fundamentals.

The principal difference between the books is that Digital Image Processing (DIP) deals primarily with the theoretical foundation of digital image processing, while Digital Image Processing Using MATLAB (DIPUM) is a book whose main focus is the use of MATLAB for image processing.  The DIPUM book covers essentially the same topics as DIP, but the theoretical treatment is not as detailed. Some instructors prefer to fill in the theoretical details in class in favor of having available a book with a strong emphasis on implementation. The North American version of DIP, Digital Image Processing, 4th ed, follows the tradition of strong emphasis on fundamentals, but contains also over 100 MATLAB projects.
