Image Enhancement

332 papers with code • 6 benchmarks • 16 datasets

Image Enhancement is basically improving the interpretability or perception of information in images for human viewers and providing ‘better’ input for other automated image processing techniques. The principal objective of Image Enhancement is to modify attributes of an image to make it more suitable for a given task and a specific observer.
