A novel contrast enhancement algorithm based on the layered difference representation is proposed in this work. We first represent gray-level differences at multiple layers in a tree-like structure. Then, based on the observation that gray-level differences, occurring more frequently in the input image, should be more emphasized in the output image, we solve a constrained optimization problem to derive the transformation function at each layer. Finally, we aggregate the transformation functions… CONTINUE READING
