Noise Generation, various types of image noise
Image synthesis is the process of creating new images from some form of image description. The kinds of images that are typically synthesized include:
Synthetic images are often used to verify the correctness of operators by applying them to known images. They are also often used for teaching purposes, as the operator output on such images is generally `clean', whereas noise and uncontrollable pixel distributions in real images make it harder to demonstrate unambiguous results. The images could be binary, gray level or color.
