ImageMagnify

VTKExamples/Cxx/Images/ImageMagnify


Description vtkImageMagnify increases the dimensions of an image by integral magnification factors. It also adjusts the spacing of the pixels so that the magnified image covers the same region as the original image. To stretch the image, the pixel spacing needs to be adjusted. This example uses vtkImageChangeInformation to modify the magnified image's spacing. The result is an image that has increased numbers of pixels and is stretched in the magnified directions.

Download and Build ImageMagnify

Click here to download ImageMagnify and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball ImageMagnify.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ImageMagnify/build 

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ImageMagnify

WINDOWS USERS

Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
