INTEGRATING IMAGING AND VISION FOR CONTENT-SPECIFIC IMAGE ENHANCEMENT

Gianluigi Ciocca, Claudio Cusano, Francesca Gasparini, Raimondo Schettini

Abstract

The quality of real-world photographs can often be considerably improved by digital image processing .In this article we describe our approach, integrating imaging and vision, for content-specific image enhancement. According to our approach, the overall quality of digital photographs is improved by a modular, image enhancement procedure driven by the image content. Single processing modules can be considered as autonomous elements. The modules can be combined to improve the overall quality according to image and defect categories.
