Section: Image Enhancement Guidelines
1. Image Selection Criteria
a. Preferred Image Orientation: For optimal results, choose images where the subject is facing directly towards the camera. This ensures maximum clarity and detail in the facial features, which is crucial for effective enhancement.
b. Recommended Image Types and Filters: - Ultrasound Images: Ultrasound images with a red filter are particularly conducive to enhancement. The red filter tends to highlight details that are critical for a successful enhancement process. - Color Preferences: Images with a yellow or gold color tone also respond well to enhancement. These color tones help in bringing out the finer details during the enhancement process.
2. Image Clarity Considerations
a. Minimizing Obstructions: The presence of extraneous elements or obstructions in the image can significantly impact the quality of enhancement. It is essential to choose images where the face of the subject, especially in the case of baby images, is not obscured by other objects or distortions.
b. Ideal Image Characteristics: The best outcomes are typically achieved with images that are clear and free from any distortions. Images with minimal 'floating' elements or distractions around the face area are ideal. Ensuring the facial area is unobstructed and clearly visible is key to achieving high-quality enhanced images.
3. Summary of Best Practices
- Choose clear, face-forward images for best results.
- Utilize ultrasound images with a red filter for enhanced detail.
- Opt for images with yellow or gold color tones for better enhancement quality.
- Avoid images with obstructions or distortions around the face area.
- Prioritize image clarity and minimal distractions for optimal enhancement outcomes.
Note: Adhering to these guidelines will significantly improve the quality of the enhanced images. However, the final outcome may also depend on the inherent quality and resolution of the original image.
