Various Speed Improvements 

Mathematica 10 enhances the performance of various image processing and analysis functions.

Timings for ridge filtering in Mathematica 10 and Mathematica 9 as the function of side length. The experiment was performed on a 64-bit Windows 7 system equipped with 2 x Intel Xeon E5620 @ 2.40 GHz CPU. The number at the bottom shows how much faster Mathematica 10 is than Mathematica 9.

Timings for image levels computation in Mathematica 10 and Mathematica 9 as the function of side length. The experiment was performed on a 64-bit Windows 7 system equipped with 2 x Intel Xeon E5620 @ 2.40 GHz CPU. The number at the bottom shows how much faster Mathematica 10 is than Mathematica 9.

Timings for padding images in Mathematica 10 and Mathematica 9 as the function of side length. The experiment was performed on a 64-bit Windows 7 system equipped with 2 x Intel Xeon E5620 @ 2.40 GHz CPU. The number at the bottom shows how much faster Mathematica 10 is than Mathematica 9.
