In this paper the edge detection technique based on the F 1-transform is presented. The method F 1-transform is used for preprocessing in the well known Canny detector. A justification of using F 1-transform in edge detection is presented. Finally, a comparative analysis of the “classical” Canny algorithm and the F 1-transform edge detector together with various examples is given.
