Detailed Description

Adjusts the brightness of an image in the pipeline.

There are two methods of applying a brightness adjustment:

  1. one value for all channels or a specific channel
  2. an array of values applied to the channels in array indexed order

The first method is very simple, one sets an adjustment value and a channel value. If the channel value is -1 or greater than the number of channels in the image then the adjustment is applied to all the channels. Otherwise, only the given channel (ex: 0 for R in RGB) is altered.

If channel is -1, "all channels" doesn't always mean that all channels will be adjusted. For RGB formats it is true, but for other formats such as HSV, SCT, etc. only certain channels will be adjusted. S & V are adjusted for the HSV colorspace. The first channel of SCT/LAB is adjusted.

The second method takes an array of values (adjustment_array) and a value for the number of elements in that array (nelems). Each entry in the array is applied to it's respective channel (0->R, 1->G, 2->B for RGB formats) to adjust the brightness of the pixel channels. If there are less values than channels in the image's pixels, then only those values will be applied. If there are more entries in the array than channels in the image's pixels, then only the first n values will be used for the given image format.

The adjustment value can be positive or negative and the value of a pixel channel will be restricted to it's range of valid values( 0-255 for 8 bit channels ).

Supports the following formats:

add example image inputs and processed image outputs

add example application code that shows how the processed images were output
