# PSET4 LESS BLUR function -Ending Edges problem 2nd version

New version of my previous problem here PSET4 LESS BLUR function -Ending Edges problem

I know the problem is with the imitations but can't figure out what is it

My code works fine but for the ending edges not. I mean the right & bottom edges values. Here is my code :

``````
// Blur image
void blur(int height, int width, RGBTRIPLE image[height][width])
{
// h = 400 w = 600
// doesn't read right corners nor edges
// create a temp copy of the image pixels to process
RGBTRIPLE originalImg[height][width];
for (int i = 0; i < height; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < width; j++)
{
originalImg[i][j].rgbtRed = image[i][j].rgbtRed;
originalImg[i][j].rgbtBlue = image[i][j].rgbtBlue;
originalImg[i][j].rgbtGreen = image[i][j].rgbtGreen;
}
}

for( int i = 0; i <= height  ; i++)
{
for( int j = 0; j <= width ; j++)
{
// if(i == 0 && j == 600)
// {

// variables to store for new value for each color
// count valid pixels to count average
int sumR = 0, sumG = 0, sumB = 0, count = 0,r = 0, b = 0, g = 0;
// available pixels for each pixel
int indexs[9][2] = {
{i-1, j-1}, {i-1, j}, {i-1, j+1},
{i, j-1}, {i, j}, {i, j+1},
{i+1, j-1}, {i+1, j}, {i+1, j+1}
};

for( int k = 0; k < 9; k++)
{
// only add valid pixels considering corner and edge pixels
if( indexs[k][0] > -1 && indexs[k][0] < height+1 && indexs[k][1] > -1 && indexs[k][1] < width+1)
{
int k0 = indexs[k][0], k1 = indexs[k][1];
// current valid pixel
RGBTRIPLE currentImg = originalImg[indexs[k][0]][indexs[k][1]];
// add current pixel color values to corresponding color variable
sumR += currentImg.rgbtRed;
sumB += currentImg.rgbtBlue;
sumG += currentImg.rgbtGreen;

r = currentImg.rgbtRed;
b = currentImg.rgbtBlue;
g = currentImg.rgbtGreen;

// increase valid pixels count
count++;
}
}
// set new pixel color value
image[i][j].rgbtRed = round(sumR/ (float) count);
image[i][j].rgbtBlue = round(sumB/ (float) count);
image[i][j].rgbtGreen = round(sumG/ (float) count);
}
// }
}
}

Not sure what you changed but the problem code remains exactly the same. It's in these lines (from the original code):

``````for( int i = 0; i <= height  ; i++)
{
for( int j = 0; j <= width ; j++)
{
...
// only add valid pixels considering corner and edge pixels
if( indexs[k][0] >= 0 && indexs[k][0] <= height && indexs[k][1] >= 0 && indexs[k][1] <= width)
{
``````

The problem is straightforward. The code is going beyond the upper boundaries of width and height.

The fix is straightforward. In the for loops, replace `>=` with `>`. In the if statement, replace `<=` with `<`.

The explanation is that the `=` allowed the values to exceed the array limit. Remember that the largest index used by an array is one less than the element count (because the index starts at 0, not 1.)

Note: This code(below) is effectively identical to the original code, so it has no different effect.

``````            // only add valid pixels considering corner and edge pixels
if( indexs[k][0] > -1 && indexs[k][0] < height+1 && indexs[k][1] > -1 && indexs[k][1] < width+1)
{
...
``````
