# gradientweight

Calculate weights for image pixels based on image gradient

## Description

calculates the pixel weight for each pixel in image
`W`

= gradientweight(`I`

)`I`

based on the gradient magnitude at
that pixel, and returns the weight array `W`

. The
weight of a pixel is inversely related to the gradient values at the
pixel location. Pixels with small gradient magnitude (smooth
regions) have a large weight and pixels with large gradient
magnitude (such as on the edges) have a small weight.

returns
the weight array `W`

= gradientweight(___,`Name,Value`

)`W`

using name-value pairs to
control aspects of weight computation.

## Output Arguments

## Tips

`gradientweight`

uses double-precision floating point operations for internal computations for all classes of`I`

, except when`I`

is of class`single`

, in which case`gradientweight`

uses single-precision floating point operations internally.
