# Image analysis basics#

This chapter covers image processing and image analysis basics. We will introduce what images are and how we can process them.

## Installation of required libraries#

We will be mostly using the numpy library, scipy, scikit-image and pooch. For visualization, we will make use of matplotlib. You can install them using preferably using conda:

```
conda install numpy scipy scikit-image matplotlib pooch
```

Alternatively, installation via pip also works:

```
pip install numpy scipy scikit-image matplotlib pooch
```
