Image processing plays an important role in computer science, making complex image manipulation more feasible. It can be used either in a general manner or in specific domains such as for medical purposes. With the availability of the internet, image processing applications can be distributed to be available for different people, regardless of their geographical location. Although there are a handful of professional image processing solutions available, there is no well-designed framework that can be simply distributed and customized to be used in specific areas. Other than image processing tools, image storage and retrieval is another issue that needs to be addressed. This research proposes a general platform that can be used for implementing a distributed image processing framework. It provides solutions for storing and retrieving images, particularly large-size ones as well as an approach for executing image processing functions that are physically located anywhere within the distributed system.
