Edge enhancement is an important image processing in imaging systems. When the enhancement is insufficient, we feel the image is out of focus, but when it is too strong, we feel unnatural. So, the optimum degree of the edge enhancement is investigated by using subjective evaluation. Several types of image are prepared by digital still camera (D1, Nikon). The image capturing conditions are no edge enhancement, no image data compression and taking care of low noise. The edge enhancement is carried out on adjusting neighboring 4 pixels according to Laplacian operation. The degree of the edge enhancement is adjusted by controlling the intensity of Laplacian operation. In every images, the image quality is improved by certain degree of edge enhancement. It is observed that the optimum degree of edge enhancement shows difference among the categories of images.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
