I'm working on multiclass skin disease image classification(caused by bacteria and fungus). Some of the sample images are shown below.
Images contain different background as shown in image_1 and image_3. Also some of the images do not have a background as shown in image_2.
I'm using CNN architectures for multi-class image classification. I have two questions.
what image processing techniques are necessary (apart from image resizing) so that the overall performance of the model improves?
Does having the same background for all the images (for ex: a white or black ground) helps in training the model?
