Arithmetic Operations

Functions described in this section perform arithmetic operations on pixel values. Arithmetic operations include addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division of pixel values of two images as well as similar operations on a single image and a constant. Computation of an absolute value, square, square root, exponential, and natural logarithm of pixels in an image buffer is also supported. Functions of this group perform operations on each pixel in the source buffer(s), and write the results into the destination buffer. Some functions also support processing of images with complex data.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
