Difference between Low pass filter and High pass filter
  • Last Updated : 05 Dec, 2019

Low pass filter:
Low pass filter is the type of frequency domain filter that is used for smoothing the image. It attenuates the high frequency components and preserves the low frequency components.

High pass filter:
High pass filter is the type of frequency domain filter that is used for sharpening the image. It attenuates the low frequency components and preserves the high frequency components.
