Merging different color channels
10 views (last 30 days)
Hi, is it possible to merge color channels from different color spaces to sort of form a new 3-dimensional image for the purpose of analysis?
For example, I am trying to extract channels L, G, and V from CIELAB, RGB, and HSV respectively and merge them before proceeding to perform further manipulations to the image. Is that possible? If not, what is the closest I can get to that?

Sure, they are after all nothing but 2-D arrays representing different aspects of an image. Just combine them any which way you see fit. Make sure that you have the different channels in compatible types such that you don't lose precision (convert to double etc).
