Image enhancement is used to improve quality of images for further analysis. In this paper, we proposed a color image enhancement method with the use of sparse representation of orthogonal transform based on the characteristics of discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficients: fewer nonzero coefficients exist in smooth domains, the amplitudes of DCT change slightly in texture contents but significantly in edge. Nonlinearly reduces the impact of textures with the use of the threshold on DCT coefficients, and th…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
