I'm searching for a fast way to fix perspective of a picture given in java or any language.And currently i really don't have any idea how to do it, nor find anything useful in Google.
Input: Point , Color
Output: Perspective-Fixed Color
By Perspective Fixing, i meant the one in Photoshop. Just Like:
I^d appreciate it if you tell me how the code piece works since i want to understand the logic.
The simple solution is to just remap coordinates from the original to the final image, copying pixels from one coordinate space to the other, rounding off as necessary -- which may result in some pixels being copied several times adjacent to each other, and other pixels being skipped, depending on whether you're stretching or shrinking (or both) in either dimension. Make sure your copying iterates through the destination space, so all pixels are covered there even if they're painted more than once, rather than thru the source which may skip pixels in the output.
The better solution involves calculating the corresponding source coordinate without rounding, and then using its fractional position between pixels to compute an appropriate average of the (typically) four pixels surrounding that location. This is essentially a filtering operation, so you lose some resolution -- but the result looks a LOT better to the human eye; it does a much better job of retaining small details and avoids creating straight-line artifacts which humans find objectionable.
Note that the same basic approach can be used to remap flat images onto any other shape, including 3D surface mapping.
