We have a tag and a tag . Their descriptions are quite similar:

This tag covers signal processing where input is an image, such as a photograph or video frame and the output could be an improved or altered image, parameters related to the image or information about features within the image.


In general, image processing is any form of signal processing for which the input is an image, such as a photograph or video frame.

Do we want to disambiguate these tags, or do we want to make them synonyms?


1 Answer 1


Given that there are 524 questions tagged with image and 389 tagged with that and image-processing both I think it makes sense to create a synonym.

Edited to add:

Output of merge operation.
