  • Publication number: 20190148443
    Abstract: Systems and methods are directed to vertical legs for an infrared detector. For example, an infrared imaging device may include a microbolometer array in which each microbolometer includes a bridge and a vertical leg structure that couples the bridge to a substrate such as a readout integrated circuit. The vertical leg structure may run along a path that is parallel to a plane defined by the bridge and may be oriented perpendicularly to the plane. The path may be disposed within, below, or above the plane defined by the bridge.

  • Publication number: 20190116293
    Abstract: Techniques of editing images using a digital image editing tool involve defining a local adjustment that includes, as separate masks, a spatial mask and a range mask. The spatial mask specifies a region of the image to be adjusted and the range mask specifies ranges of colors and tones to be adjusted independent of the region specified by the spatial mask. In applying these masks, when a user changes a setting in the digital image editing tool, the digital image editing tool weights the effect of the setting according to the values of the spatial mask and the range mask for each pixel of the image.

  • Patent number: 9633421
    Abstract: Image compensation value computation techniques are described. In one or more implementations, an image key value is calculated, by a computing device, for image data based on values of pixels of the image data. A tuning value is computed by the computing device using the image key value. The tuning value is configured to adjust how the image data is to be measured to compute an image compensation value. The image compensation value is then computed by the computing device such that a statistic computed in accordance with the tuning value approaches a target value. The image compensation value is applied by the computing device to adjust the image data.
