Study of smoothing filters – SavitzkyGolay filters
Last week I saw Daniel Holden tweeting about SavitzkyGolay filters and their properties (less smoothing than a Gaussian filter) and I got excited… because I have never heard of them before and it’s an opportunity to learn something. When I … Continue reading

Practical Gaussian filtering: Binomial filter and small sigma Gaussians
Gaussian filters are the bread and butter of signal and image filtering. They are isotropic and radially symmetric, filter out high frequencies extremely well, and just look pleasant and smooth. In this post I will cover two of my favorite … Continue reading
Processing aware image filtering: compensating for the upsampling
This post summarizes some thoughts and experiments on “filtering aware image filtering” I’ve been doing for a while. The core idea is simple – if you have some “fixed” step at the end of the pipeline that you cannot control … Continue reading

Computing gradients on grids of pixels and voxels – forward, central, and… diagonal differences
In this post, I will focus on gradients of image signals defined on grids in computer graphics and image processing. Specifically, gradients / derivatives of images, height fields, distance fields, when they are represented as discrete, uniform grids of pixels … Continue reading
Bilinear down/upsampling, aligning pixel grids, and that infamous GPU half pixel offset
It’s been more than two decades of me using bilinear texture filtering, a few months since I’ve written about bilinear resampling, but only two days since I discovered a bug of mine related to it. 😅 Similarly, just last week … Continue reading

Compressing PBR material texture sets with sparsity and kSVD dictionary learning
Introduction In this blog post, I am going to continue exploration of compressing whole PBR texture sets together (as opposed to compressing each texture from the set separately) and using the fact that those textures are strongly correlated. In my … Continue reading

Local linear models and guided filtering – an alternative to bilateral filter
Intro In this blog post I am going to describe an alternative tool for the graphics and image processing programmers’ toolbox – guided filtering. Guided filtering is a really handy tool that I learned about from my coworkers, and I … Continue reading
