This chapter exploits the Fourier relationship between the fields at different positions for modifying images. Firstly, apodization is considered, where a filter is added in the plane of the lens to modify the spatial distribution in the focal plane. Secondly, spatial filtering is analysed, where a two-lens system is used to allow the manipulation of an image by modifying its Fourier transform.
