//----------------------------------------------
// Inputs:
// -------
// QImage& image - image to blur
// float sigma - how much to blur it
// QPoint offset - offset within edge image we're working on
// QSize fullImageRes - resolution of the full size image
// QImage* edgeImage - an edge image constructing using the full size image
// bool blurEdges    - are we sharpening edges or regions
//
// Outputs:
// --------
// Nothing returned, we'll modify the image passed by refference in place
//
// Description:
// ------------
// The common approach to sharpening images is subtract a 
// blurred version of an image using the following equation:
//
// v' = 2*v - vBlur
//
// ...where v is the original value (luminance) for a given pixel, 
// vBlur is the blurred value, and v' is the end result.
//
// While one could apply this blur-subtraction in the individual color channels
// you will likely encounter strange artifacts at color channel boundaries where new
// colors are introducted. Sharpening in the value/luminance domain helps bright out
// image contrast without introducing color artifacts.
//
// Unfortunately, sharpening using this approach will magnify all image contrast, both
// somewhat strong edges and low level noise. We'd like to be able to aggressively sharpen
// images without magnifying CCD/film grain noise, but how?
//
// A somewhat popular solution to this problem is to use an edge image. Constructing edge images
// can be difficult, but when provided such information can tell us when to to sharpen and when not to, or
// used more wisely, how to blend the sharpend data with the unsharpened original image data seemlessly.
// Grayscale edge images can be used in this way by first blurring slightly, then dividing the 
// value component of a pixel by 255 to get an alpha value. Near edges the value will be closer to 
// 255 and the resulting alpha will be closer to 1. In between regions where we don't want to 
// enhance noise by sharpening alpha values will be close to 0, preventing aggressively 
// sharpened vaues from being used.
//
// Algorithm:
// ----------
// The algorithm works as follows:
// 1.) The input image is blurred using the sigma value. The large the sigma value 
//     the more the input image is blurred and the more pronounced edges will become.
// 2.) We iterate over each image pixel, fetching the color values of the original and blurred forms
//     of the image, as well as the color of the give pixel within the edge image.
// 
//     An alpha value is computed using the edge image pixel color, which in turn is used
//     to compute the blended pixel value after sharpening:
//
//     alpha = edgeColor / 255
//     v' = alpha* min( max( 2*v - vBlur, 0 ), 1) + (1-alpha)*v;
//
//     Finally, we convert the pixel color back to RGB space and write back
//     to the resulting sharpened image.
//
// This algorithm works and was initially tested without the use of an edge image. When
// no edge image is provided alpha is simply set to 1 and full sharpening is applied
// to every image pixel.
//
// Future work:
// ------------
// Further work needs to be done regarding bluring/sharpening edges and region independently.
// The "blurEdges" param allows the algorithm to concentrate sharpening on regions instead of
// object boundaries when an edge image is provided; however, such usage is not well understood
// or used at this time.
