I have a text image from where I want to detect the letters 'y' by:
  • select one morphological operation for the purpose
  • design the corresponding structuring element
  • apply the filter to the image once
  • calculate the skeleton of the detected letter
And I really have no idea how can I do this. Can someone please help? The input image is 'text.png' from matlab
Thank you in advance!

You can refer to this, or you can run the code below.
clear all
close all
% Read in image
I = imread('textsample.png');
I = rgb2gray(I);
% Have user select a section of the image and create template
a_template = imcrop(I);
% Cross-correlate the image with the template
Xcorr = normxcorr2(a_template, I);
% Threshold the image
t_Xcorr = graythresh(Xcorr);
Xcorr_threshold = Xcorr > 0.7;
% Dim of the template and image are needed for drawing boxes and loops
temp_dim = size(a_template);
I_dim = size(I);
y_len = temp_dim(1); x_len = temp_dim(2);
% Find the blods in the thresholded image
L = bwlabel(Xcorr_threshold);
blobs = regionprops(L);
% Draw red box around all the centroids of the blobs
for k = 1:length(blobs)
y1 = blobs(k).Centroid(2) - y_len/2; x1 = blobs(k).Centroid(1) - x_len/2;
pos_vec = [x1-x_len/2 y1-y_len/2 temp_dim(2) temp_dim(1)];
rectangle('Position', pos_vec, 'EdgeColor', 'r');
% Display the number of a's
text(175,100, "There are: " + length(blobs) + " a's", 'FontSize', 14, 'color', 'r')
Also refer to documentation for more help and also checkout "bwmorph".
