### How can you see which points in the spectrum is from which pixel in the original image?

Take the image and spectrum below. If I look at the spectrum, it just look like noise.... How to make sense of it intuitively? Image: Frequency spectrum of image (using Fourier Transform):

### 2D convolution: Flipping the kernel?

Why do we need to flip the kernel in 2D convolution in the first place? What's the benefit of this? So, why can't we leave it unflipped? http://www.songho.ca/dsp/convolution/convolution2d_example.html ...
