SplineDeformationGenerator available image deformations

SplineDeformationGenerator is an image processing interface for image deformations developed as an ImageJ plugin. It can perform 5 different types of image deformations:

  • Elastic deformations (represented as well by cubic B-splines).
  • Fisheye deformations.
  • Perspective deformations.
  • Barrel/pincushion deformations.
  • "Smile" deformations, typical from 2D gels images.
