Median Filter


Median Filter


Applies a median filter to an image. The median filter is defined as the median of all pixels within a local region of an image.

The median filter is normally used to reduce salt and pepper noise in an image, somewhat like the mean filter. However, it often does a better job than the mean filter of preserving useful detail in the image.
