In this paper, an image based LED design simulator is proposed to reduce LED design cost mostly contingent on a design expert. Current techniques about LED design schemes have mostly treated text-based LED simulators. The proposed method is to provide novel and easy simulator for LED designers. At first, image filters including histogram equalization, bicubic interpolation. and scaling are employed. Color mapping and special effects are added as well. Experimental results classified into several categories along with running times are shown to validate the proposed methods.
