Stanford CS106A Code in Place Mom Day Project!!

by Nerrissa W


My project manipulates my mother's day photo image of myself and my daughter. The only photo that I liked from that day has a big shadow in it, so I attempted to write my program to remove the shadow (yes I know photoshop can do this, but wanted to try this challenge in Python). This ended up being too challenging because the 'shadow' pixels were very similar to the pixel colors of my hair and my daughters. So, I got part of the way - removed the shadow, but didn't find neighboring pixels that could replace the shadow (this is my option #4). The final project goal was modified to ask the user for input on how to format the photo (e.g. Black & White, Sepia, Artistic/Edge, Shadow Removed are sample options).
