Hi guys, i try to filter binarized image using closing and opening operation in morphological filtering. But, why the image completely damage ? (note: i have tried to invert the image). Is my kernel / structure element wrong ? Thanks.

initial image

invert the image :

invert image


filtered image

as an information, i use 3 x 3 disk structuring element

Mat k = getStructuringElement(MORPH_ELLIPSE,Size(3,3));

here is my opencv code :

Mat k = getStructuringElement(MORPH_ELLIPSE,Size(3,3));

morphologyEx( thresholdImg, openingImg, 3, k );
morphologyEx( openingImg, finalMorph, 2, k );

note, that white things on black bg are expected here, if you have black contours, erode and dilate swap their meaning.

have a look at the erode / morphology tutorials

you probably have to invert your image (maybe using THRESH_INVERT) before applying the morphology ops.

This result seems consistent with your code. If you are trying to achieve some other result we need to know what it is that you are trying to do :)
