Owing to recent technological advancement, computers and other devices running several image editing applications can be further exploited for digital image processing operations. This paper evaluates various image processing techniques using matrix laboratory (MATLAB-based analytics). Compared to the conventional techniques, MATLAB gives several advantages for image processing. MATLAB-based technique provides easy debugging with extensive data analysis and visualization, easy implementation and algorithmic-testing without recompilation. Besides, MATLAB's computational codes can be enhanced and exploited to process and create simulations of both still and video images. Moreover, MATLAB codes are much concise compared to C++, thus making it easier for perusing and troubleshooting. MATLAB can handle errors prior to execution by proposing various ways to make the codes faster. The proposed technique enables advanced image processing operations such as image cropping/resizing, image denoising, blur removal, and image sharpening. The study aims at providing readers with the most recent MATLAB-based image processing application-tools. We also provide an empirical-based method using two-dimensional discrete cosine transform (2D-DCT) derived from its coefficients. Using the most recent algorithms running on MATLAB toolbox, we performed simulations to evaluate the performance of our proposed technique. The results largely present MATLAB as a veritable approach for image processing operations.
