Sharpen an Image Using the GPU

This example shows how to sharpen an image using gpuArrays and GPU-enabled functions.

Read the image, and send it to the GPU using the gpuArray function.

image = gpuArray(imread('peppers.png'));

Convert the image to doubles, and apply convolutions to obtain the gradient image. Then, using the gradient image, sharpen the image by a factor of amount.

dimage = im2double(image); 
gradient = convn(dimage,ones(3)./9,'same') - convn(dimage,ones(5)./25,'same');
amount = 5;
sharpened = dimage + amount.*gradient;

Resize, plot and compare the original and sharpened images.

imshow(imresize([dimage, sharpened],0.7));
