Contrast enhancement is an important step in almost every image processing and computer vision application. Different applications demand different approaches to achieve the required level of enhancement. In consumer electronics, for example, any enhancement method should be able to enhance both global and local details but not at the expense of deterioration in image quality. In this paper we present our preliminary work on the development of a new method for image contrast enhancement called… CONTINUE READING
