Registers two images (2-D rigid translation) within a fraction of a pixel specified by the user. Instead of computing a zero-padded FFT (fast Fourier transform), this code uses selective upsampling by a matrix-multiply DFT (discrete FT) to dramatically reduce computation time and memory without sacrificing accuracy. With this procedure all the image points are used to compute the upsampled cross-correlation in a very small neighborhood around its peak. This algorithm is referred to as the single-step DFT algorithm in [1].
