Abstract. In this paper we discuss general requirements for parallel
implementations of image processing algorithms. Of special importance
are the communication demands in the parallel system which are de­
termined by the algorithm under consideration. These communication
demands are decisive for determining the best way to distribute the im­
age data to the network processors. Analysing these factors for some
typical image processing algorithms reveals that it is difficult to find a
fixed network structure which meets all the demands equally well. A
possibility to cope with these problems is to embed different topologies
into a fixed network structure. The mentioned factors were guidelines for
the design of the general purpose Parallel Image Processing System P i ps .
We describe the structure of this software package and elucidate for some
