## C#.Net - Perspective Image Transform

Hello,

Today, I'm going to share one interesting thing that everyone may need - perspective image transformation.

Its 2D transformation that makes image look like in perspective view like 3D but without any 3D:

So, the main thing there is math. We take an image, specify four points and math will do the trick.

First step is to create and calculate matrices from the new four points:

//original points

Point p1 = new Point(0, 0);

Point p2 = new Point(width, 0);

Point p3 = new Point(width, height);

Point p4 = new Point(0, height);

//create matrix

A = Matrix3x3.Homogenous(p1, p2, p3, p4);

//new points

Point n1 = points[0];

Point n2 = points[1];

Point n3 = points[2];

Point n4 = points[3];

B = Matrix3x3.Homogenous(n1, n2, n3, n4);

A.Inverse();

C = B.MultMat(A);

C.Inverse();

Second step is to go through each pixel on your image and calculate new pixel:

Point ptDest = new Point(0, 0);

PointF ptOriginF = new Point(0, 0);

int iOrigX = 0;

Color pix = new Color();

for (int x = 0; x < width; ++x)

{

for (int y = 0; y < height; ++y)

{

ptDest.X = x;

ptDest.Y = y;

ptOriginF = C.Update(ptDest);

if (ptOriginF.X >= -5 && ptOriginF.X < width && ptOriginF.Y >= -5 && ptOriginF.Y < height)

{

iOrigX = (int)ptOriginF.X; // round to lowest integer

int iOrigY = (int)ptOriginF.Y; // round to lowest integer

double dx = ptOriginF.X - iOrigX;

double dy = ptOriginF.Y - iOrigY;

Point ptOrigin = new Point(iOrigX, iOrigY);

if (dx != 0.0f || dy != 0.0)

{

Color pix1 = Color.FromArgb(0, 255, 255, 255);

Color pix2 = Color.FromArgb(0, 255, 255, 255);

Color pix3 = Color.FromArgb(0, 255, 255, 255);

Color pix4 = Color.FromArgb(0, 255, 255, 255);

//

// Correct square's direction

//

int idx = (dx >= 0.0) ? 1 : -1;

int idy = (dy >= 0.0) ? 1 : -1;

dx = Math.Abs(dx);

dy = Math.Abs(dy);

//

// Get pixels of square

//

if (ptOrigin.X >= 0 && ptOrigin.X < width && ptOrigin.Y >= 0 && ptOrigin.Y < height)

pix1 = src.GetPixel(ptOrigin.X, ptOrigin.Y);

if (ptOrigin.X + idx >= 0 && ptOrigin.X + idx < width && ptOrigin.Y >= 0 && ptOrigin.Y < height)

pix2 = src.GetPixel(ptOrigin.X + idx, ptOrigin.Y);

if (ptOrigin.X >= 0 && ptOrigin.X < width && ptOrigin.Y + idy >= 0 && ptOrigin.Y + idy < height)

pix3 = src.GetPixel(ptOrigin.X, ptOrigin.Y + idy);

if (ptOrigin.X + idx >= 0 && ptOrigin.X + idx < width && ptOrigin.Y + idy >= 0 && ptOrigin.Y + idy < height)

pix4 = src.GetPixel(ptOrigin.X + idx, ptOrigin.Y + idy);

//

// Use bilinear interpolation

//

double r = pix1.R + (pix2.R - pix1.R) * dx + (pix3.R - pix1.R) * dy + (pix1.R - pix2.R - pix3.R + pix4.R) * dx * dy;

double g = pix1.G + (pix2.G - pix1.G) * dx + (pix3.G - pix1.G) * dy + (pix1.G - pix2.G - pix3.G + pix4.G) * dx * dy;

double b = pix1.B + (pix2.B - pix1.B) * dx + (pix3.B - pix1.B) * dy + (pix1.B - pix2.B - pix3.B + pix4.B) * dx * dy;

double a = pix1.A + (pix2.A - pix1.A) * dx + (pix3.A - pix1.A) * dy + (pix1.A - pix2.A - pix3.A + pix4.A) * dx * dy;

pix = Color.FromArgb((byte)a, (byte)r, (byte)g, (byte)b);

}

else

{

pix = src.GetPixel(ptOrigin.X, ptOrigin.Y);

}

dst.SetPixel(ptDest.X, ptDest.Y, pix);

}

}

}

So this is bilinear interpolation is the main thing to transform your image.

Thank you.

PS

will extend this and provide source code if you will request.

9/27/2018 4:10:15 PM |Thanks for this. In the end I went with solution that didn't use matrices:

Vector ab = new Vector(Points[0], Points[1]);

Vector bc = new Vector(Points[1], Points[2]);

Vector cd = new Vector(Points[2], Points[3]);

Vector da = new Vector(Points[3], Points[0]);

ab /= ab.Magnitude;

bc /= bc.Magnitude;

cd /= cd.Magnitude;

da /= da.Magnitude;

double dab = Math.Abs((new Vector(Points[0], point).CrossProduct(ab)));

double dbc = Math.Abs((new Vector(Points[1], point).CrossProduct(bc)));

double dcd = Math.Abs((new Vector(Points[2], point).CrossProduct(cd)));

double dda = Math.Abs((new Vector(Points[3], point).CrossProduct(da)));

point.X = (int)(width * (dda / (dda + dbc)));

point.Y = (int)(height * (dab / (dab + dcd)));
