Used instruments: the Interval figure, the Draw delimiter measurements filter, Threshold filter, Inpaint image by mask filter.
Objects of research: photo with the volvox filter by 4 times increasing (Volvox.jpg).
Task: to draw the image in the noise areas, restoring them according to surrounding image.
NOTE. Tutorial does not contain the information on all the possibilities of the application. Here the optimal way of solving the task set is offered.
Step 1. Launch of the application
Launch the Altami Studio application. For launching the application use the Altami Studio shortcut at the workbench or the menu item Start→Programs→Altami Ltd→Altami Studio 3.0. Besides, the application can be launched from a folder into which it was installed (usually it is C:\Program Files\Altami Ltd\Altami Studio 3.0\).
Step 2. Opening files
In Altami Studio application open the file with the image, in order to do that use the menu item File→Open and mark the file Volvox.jpg. It is in Tutorials\Pictures folder which is in the main folder of the application. Click the Open button.Picture 1. Opened document in Altami Studio application
The following image shall appear in the application window:
Step 3. Opening the Filters panel
Call the Filters panel with the help of the Filters→Filters menu.Picture 2. Opening the Filters panel
Step 4. Creating noise at the image
In order to show noise at the image, use the Interval instrument. In order to place the interval, click the pictogram Add interval to the active document, and indicate by clicking with the left button of the mouse the beginning and end of the interval.Picture 3. Creating the Interval figure
After the interval is created, mark it and click the right button of the mouse. The context menu shall appear. Select the Delimiter
Picture 4. Transformation of the Interval figure into Delimiter
Then add to the document filter Draw delimiter measurements
, using the menu Filters
→Work with measurements
→Draw delimiter measurements
Picture 5. Adding the filter Draw delimiter measurements
Select the filter Draw delimiter measurements
at the Filters
panel and indicate in the filter parameters the value of the penWidth
parameter as 25 (picture 6).

Click with the right button of the mouse at the image and at the appeared context menu select the point Show measurements
Picture 7. Turning off the Show measurements
The showed Delimiter
figure will be the noise at the image for us.
Step 5. Building the noise map
Now with the Threshold transformation it is necessary to find this noise at the image. Add to the document Threshold filter, having used the menu Filters→Gray transformations→Threshold.Picture 8. Adding the Threshold filter
Select in the Filters
filter and indicate in the filter parameters the value of the threshValue
parameter as 0.00. Also select threshBinaryInv
Picture 9. Setting of the Threshold filter
Thus, the noise map is found and formed.
Step 6. Adding the filter Inpaint image by mask to the document
With the help of the menu select Filters→Work with the background→Inpaint image by mask.Picture 10. Adding the filter Inpaint image by mask
By selecting the filter Inpaint image by mask
in the Filters
panel in its lower part there appears a window with the settings of this filter.
Picture 11. Filter Inpaint Image by mask: saveImage
Here you can switch on and switch off the filter, having put and having deleted respectively a tick in a check box near the enabled
Leave the value of the inpaintRadius
parameter as 3 by default.
Step 7. Work with Inpaint image by mask filter
Select at the Filters panel the Inpaint image by mask filter. By default in filter parameters there are ticks near enabled and saveImage parameters . That means, that in this case the filter is switched on and reminds the supplied at the input noise map (picture 11).Picture 12. Inpaint image by mask filter: showImage
Switch off the image saving by having put away the tick from the saveImage parameter and switch on the showImage parameter (picture 12).
By this action we have checked that the noise map is really remembered.
At the Filters
panel select the filter Threshold
. Turn it off having put away the tick near the enabled
Picture 13. Turning off the Threshold filter
In the Filters
panel select the Inpaint image by mask
filter. Turn off showing of the noise map kept in the image filter, having put away the tick near the showImage
