Hi to all. It's my first post here. I want to ask about 2D Gabor filter implementation. I have some code but it is not working. So let me present my work first:

``````signed int sumX, sumY;
long int SUM = 0;
int I = 0, J = 0;
double theta = 0;

unsigned char *pixels;
unsigned char *myEdgeDetectedImage;
float *thetaArray;
float *gaborArray;
signed char *imageAfterGabor;

// Memory allocation
pixels = malloc(width * height);
myEdgeDetectedImage = malloc(width * height);
thetaArray = malloc(sizeof(float *) * width * height);
gaborArray = malloc(sizeof(float *) * width * height);
imageAfterGabor = malloc(width * height);

/*

(...) some code

*/

/*-----------------------------------
-----------------------------------*/
for(row=1; row<height-1; row++) {
for(col=1; col<width-1; col++) {
sumX = 0;
sumY = 0;
SUM = 0;

for(I=-1; I<=1; I++) {
for(J=-1; J<=1; J++) {
sumX = sumX + pixels[(row+I)*width + (col+J)]*Gx[I+1][J+1];
sumY = sumY + pixels[(row+I)*width + (col+J)]*Gy[I+1][J+1];
}
}

theta=0;
theta = atan2((double)sumY, (double)sumX);

// Making an array of counted arrays
// that i will use later
thetaArray[row*width + col] = theta;
}
}

/*-----------------------------------
Gabor Filter
-----------------------------------*/
for(row=0; row<height; row++) {
for(col=0; col<width; col++) {
x_theta = row*sin(thetaArray[row*width + col]) + col*cos(thetaArray[row*width + col]);
y_theta = col*sin(thetaArray[row*width + col]) - row*cos(thetaArray[row*width + col]);

exp_temp = -0.5*(((x_theta*x_theta)/((double)sigmaX*(double)sigmaX)) + ((y_theta*y_theta)/((double)sigmaY*(double)sigmaY)));

gaborArray[row*width + col] = exp(exp_temp) * cos(2.0*M_PI*(1/ridgeFrequency)*x_theta);
}
}

/*-----------------------------------

-----------------------------------*/
for(row=2; row<height-2; row++) {
for(col=2; col<width-2; col++) {
gaborTemp = 0;
for (I=-2; I<=2; I++) {
for (J=-2; J<=2; J++) {
gaborTemp += pixels[(row+I) + (col+J)*width] * gaborArray[(row+I) + (col+J)*width];
}
}
imageAfterGabor[row*width + col] = gaborTemp;
}
}``````

So i have this code but it doesn't work. Some strange values are coming after calculations. Values stored in gaborArray looks strange:

``````gabor=0.882496902584595455110161310586
gabor=0.754839601989007347171423134569
gabor=0.606530659712633424263117376540
gabor=0.457833361771614266721996955312

gabor=0.022794180883612343707644853907``````

This values are only samples. As you can see all values are decreasing, but what is worst - the are goning to 0. This numbers should be point values of gray-scale image. I don't know where is error so please someone to help. Any hint is appreciated :)

Leave the code which you have tested to be working and restart from there testing additions to program properly. Refactor code to functions.
