SmoothImageBySquareAverage Method of the ImageProcessingTools Object

This method smoothes the image by averaging over the square neighborhood. The method removes sharp differences from the image. It can be useful, for example, if the image contains some noise, i.e. random black dots or speckles. This method should not be used if the lines of letters on the image are thin.

Important! This method can be used for gray and color images only.
