Extension Methods
  NameDescription
Public Extension MethodHasMethod
Checks whether an object implements a method with the given name.
(Defined by ExtensionMethods.)
Public Extension MethodIsEqual
Compares two objects for equality, performing an elementwise comparison if the elements are vectors or matrices.

Remarks

The filter performs convolution filter using the blur kernel:

1  2  3  2  1
2  4  5  4  2
3  5  6  5  3
2  4  5  4  2
1  2  3  2  1

For the list of supported pixel formats, see the documentation to Convolution filter.

Note Note
By default this filter sets ProcessAlpha property to , so the alpha channel of 32 bpp and 64 bpp images is blurred as well.

Sample usage:

// create filter
Blur filter = new Blur( );
// apply the filter
filter.ApplyInPlace( image );

Initial image:
