Negative Image Effect

The negative image effect transforms an image by inverting its colors. This effect creates a photo-negative appearance, where light areas appear dark and dark areas appear light.

The color inversion process involves subtracting each color component from the maximum color value (typically 255 for 8-bit color channels) to get the inverted color.

Color Inversion Formula

To apply a negative effect, each pixel's color components (red, green, and blue) are inverted. The new color components \( R', G', B' \) of a pixel are calculated as:

\[ R' = 255 - R \]

\[ G' = 255 - G \]

\[ B' = 255 - B \]


  • \( R \) is the original red component of the pixel.
  • \( G \) is the original green component of the pixel.
  • \( B \) is the original blue component of the pixel.

Example Calculation

Consider a pixel with original color components \( (R, G, B) = (100, 150, 200) \).

The inverted color components are calculated as:

\[ R' = 255 - 100 = 155 \]

\[ G' = 255 - 150 = 105 \]

\[ B' = 255 - 200 = 55 \]

So, the new color of the pixel after applying the negative effect is \( (R', G', B') = (155, 105, 55) \).

Applying the Negative Effect to the Image

The negative effect is applied to the entire image by iterating over each pixel, computing the inverted color components using the color inversion formula, and updating the pixel values with the new inverted colors.

Applying a negative effect to an image inverts its colors, creating a visually striking and altered appearance. The process involves transforming the original pixel colors to their respective complementary colors.
