Matlab contains a huge resources for image processing. It has Image Processing Toolbox which can be used to process any kind of image files.Image Processing Toolbox™ provides a comprehensive set of reference-standard algorithms and graphical tools for image processing, analysis, visualization, and algorithm development. You can perform image enhancement, image deblurring, feature detection, noise reduction, image segmentation, spatial transformations, and image registration. Many functions in the toolbox are multithreaded to take advantage of multicore and multiprocessor computers.

Below is the screenshot to access the Image Processing Toolbox of the MATLAB. You can view deoms and other help section to get started with Image Processing in MATLAB.
