A Review on Image Enhancement Techniques

Authors(2) :-Varsha, Manju Mathur

This work is intended to analyze and study the techniques used for enhancing the quality and the detail of information content into the image file. Sometime due to bad light or high luminous images clicked by or captured by the devices may be categorized into two, either in overexposed or in underexposed category. To eliminate the irregularities of this type image enhancement algorithm may be used. The main purpose of image enhancement is to bring out feature that is hidden in an image increase contrast in a low contrast image, or to process an image so that outcome is more appropriate than inventive image. In this paper different techniques and issues have been discussed and a postulate has been made out of the review techniques.
