Abstract

One image processing application is to reconstruct the original scene from the low quality images. Considering the idea histogram distribution can reflect good vision effect. So many histogram analyzing based methods have been studied recently. However, some methods require users to set some parameters or condition, and cannot get the optimal results automatically. To overcome those short come, this paper presents an Adaptive Histogram Separation and Mapping (AHSM) method for Backlight image enhancement. First, we separate the histogram by binary tree structure with the proposed Adaptive Histogram Separation Unit (AHSU). And then mapping the Low Dynamic Range (LDR) histogram partition into High Dynamic Range (HDR). By doing this, the excessive or scarcity enhancement can be avoid. The experimental results show that the proposed method can gives better enhancement results, also compared with some histogram analyzing based methods and get better results.
