Wavelet transform for images cannot interpret it correctly

    Wavelet transform for images....cannot interpret it correctly...

    Hello Forum,
    The discrete wavelet transform and the continuous wavelet transform are two different beasts.

    When we take the DWT of an image, we get a bunch of subimages that are different in size. Each subimage is like a filtered (low pass or high pass) of the original image....

    I understand filtering but I don't see any relation to the way I understand the 1D wavelet transform works: correlation between the signal and scaled, stretched versions of the chosen mother wavelet. The wavelet transform shows the coefficient for the most correlated wavelets....This seems way far from a filtering process...
