Best Language for Image Processing | Most Suitable Programming Language for Image Processing | Matlab vs OpenCV

Best Language for Image Processing | Most Suitable Programming Language for Image Processing and Computer Vision. There are many programming languages that can process the images. C, C++, Java, Matlab, OpenCV, etc. But which of them is the best language for image processing? The best language for image processing is decided by its simplicity and easy to use nature. As per my knowledge and experience, the Matlab and OpenCV win the race of the best language for image processing.

Both Matlab and OpenCV are highly efficient programming language for processing the digital images. Judging the best programming language for image processing out of them is quite hard because they both are best at their own level. But still, I'll try to find out which language is the best language for image processing for whom under what circumstances.

OpenCV is an open-source programming language. While Matlab is not an open-source programming language.

Since OpenCV is open-source, it is free of cost. The Matlab is not open source and is very costly. It costs approximately around 100000 rupees (Indian currency) just for 'image processing' toolbox.

OpenCV code is comparatively faster than Matlab code.

Matlab code is very easy to debug while this is not the case with OpenCV.

The OpenCV programming language is preferred by industries. The Matlab programming language is mostly preferred by the researchers and academicians.

Why OpenCV programming language is mostly preferred by industries? Why Matlab programming language is mostly preferred by the researchers and academicians?

The OpenCV is open-source and free of cost programming language. There is no boundation of the scope of usage of doing programming in OpenCV. Possibly any image processing task can be done using OpenCV. There is no boundary/ limitation. That is why the industry person uses OpenCV. 

There is a limitation of the usage of programming in Matlab. The Matlab is not an open-source programming suite. Its license is of a very high price. Therefore many features of free Matlab suite (student version) are not freely available here. Proper coding is needed to be done to do those tasks. This is the only limitation of Matlab. Still, it is highly used by the researchers and academicians because the support and documentation of Matlab are extremely easy to use and simple to learn. Therefore it is very easy to learn Matlab. Most of the research scholars, scientists, researchers, and academicians prefer to do image processing using Matlab only because of its simplicity.

My personal experience and concluding statement
If you are a graduate, postgraduate, or doctoral scholar and you don't have any idea of programming in image processing, then I strongly suggest and recommend you use Matlab. Because there is a lot of literature is available on the internet for help and assistance. You can learn Matlab using its support and documentation only. The support and documentation are so strong that it acts as google. You ask your question and it gives you an answer. This is how I have learned the Matlab without anyone's help. The official website of Matlab has a coding community section i.e. FileExchange where all researchers share their code. And this is highly helpful for the beginners to get help in the programming of Matlab.

I hope that I have clear your doubt about the best programming language for image processing. If you like this post then share it with your friends.
