Image Manipulation with Processing
In developing my understanding of the techniques used in Processing I was introduced to the idea of Method Overloading, a feature found in Java. Method Overloading allows a class to have two or more methods with the same name as long as their argument lists are different (Beginners Book 2014).
Whilst practicing the techniques I went on to experiment with the use of Agents and Arraylists. In doing so I created an image manipulation, which becomes more detailed as it develops with the overlay of multiple rect() shapes. I started off with creating a defined agent, as shown below and then defined its’ characteristics and applied those characteristics to a chosen image.
