I have a camera I'm planning on attaching to an arduino uno, that I want to take pictures and extract the average RGB value from each image.
This is the camera I have, but I've now realized that it takes pre-compressed JPEG images, and so I cannot make use of the data it's giving me.
I realize that an arduino is not the optimal tool to use in this case, but I'm curious as to whether there would be any way to decompress the images and convert them to a format I could use. It does not need to be fast, and I do not need to take the pictures quickly. I have experience with programming but have not done many projects with the arduino, so any help or advice is appreciated.
