A Hybrid Illumination Refinement Technique Based on Double Niblack Thresholds

Yi-Hua Wang, Jung-San Lee, and Bo Li
Abstract—Image archive is a transformation from source to its digital form. This process, however, often leads to the irregular distribution of image illumination, which distorting the content of images. In this article, we propose a hybrid illumination technique based on double Niblack thresholds to refine the brightness of under-exposure and over-exposure images, including the text image and the text-photo image. Experimental results have shown that the new method can effectively adjust the illumination to improve the quality of digital images.

Index Terms—Illumination, contrast enhancement, image binarization, Niblack.
