An Edge in an image is a sharp variation of the intensity function. In greyscale images this applies to the intensity or brightness of pixels. In color images it can also refer to sharp variations of color. An edge is distinguished from noise by possessing long range structure. Properties of edges include gradient and orientation.

Edge detection is an important task in Object recognition.

When two non-parallel edges meet, they form a corner.
