NAME

       light_correct - correct illumination errors on set of images

SYNOPSIS

       light_correct grey image1 image2 image3 ...

DESCRIPTION

       The first argument should be an image of a piece of grey card, subsequent arguments should
       be images taken with the same lighting set-up which need correcting. The corrected  images
       are written to files prefixed with "ic_".

       For example, suppose you have a directory with the following files in:

         example% ls
         dat1.1.v dat1.2.v dat2.1.v dat2.2.v dat3.1.v dat3.2.v
         dat4.1.v dat4.2.v grey.v

       then run light_correct like this:

         example% light_correct grey.v dat*.v

       to generate this:

         example% ls
         dat1.1.v dat1.2.v dat2.1.v dat2.2.v dat3.1.v dat3.2.v
         dat4.1.v dat4.2.v grey.v
         ic_dat1.1.v ic_dat1.2.v ic_dat2.1.v ic_dat2.2.v ic_dat3.1.v
         ic_dat3.2.v ic_dat4.1.v ic_dat4.2.v

       light_correct works by smoothing out the grey card image, finding grey-mean/pixel for each
       point, and then multiplying the result by all the following images. It  also  removes  any
       .desc files it generates, to avoid problems with im_global_balance(3).

RETURN VALUE

       returns 0 on success and non-zero on error.
