Image Entropy is a command-line tool for calculating the entropy of colour
images. Normally, image entropy is calculated only on greyscale images. This
utility converts the image colour space to HSV, and calculates the entropy for each
channel. The results are written out as a CSV.
image-entropy [file1] [file2]...
There are no command-line flags. All arguments passed are interpreted as
filenames. The CSV data created is written to stdout.
Binaries are not provided for this tool. Please build from source.
