This page has been written in HTML5. It contains Silverlight 5 applets written in C#.
I tested everything under Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 7, GoogleChrome 15, Safari 5.1.
In order to see and run the Silverlight objects, make sure that your preferred browser has installed its Silverlight 5 Plugin.
You can install any Silverlight applet of this textbook as independent and permanent out-of-browser application
locally onto your computer.
Just open a chapter, select, expand and right-click an arbitrary Silverlight applet and choose "
Install xxxxx Application onto this computer...".
Such out-of-browser applications behave as a normal Windows program and can be easily and completely uninstalled by right clicking them again. You will be asked if you want to "
Remove this application...".
You can buy a license of all programs of this textbook.

I wrote the C# code in an extremely compact style (but with rich comments) using the Silverlight 5 library.
The programs run either
- as Silverlight applets inside a HTML-page or
- as stand alone Windows applications out of the browser.

a) Visual Web Developer 2010 Express,.
b) Microsoft Silverlight 5 Tools for Visual Studio 2010 SP1,
c) Silverlight 5 Developer Runtime for Windows 32 bit or 64 bit

I wrote all programs that filter real images by programming a background thread that executes the time consuming filter in order not to block the browser or the out-of-browser user interface.
When you are not familiar with thread programming, I recommend to read/watch:
