Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a Gaussian mixture based image enhancement method which uses particle swarm optimization (PSO) to have an edge over other contemporary methods. The proposed method uses the guassian mixture model to model the lightness histogram of the input image in CIEL*a*b* space. The intersection points of the guassian components in the model are used to partition the lightness histogram. . The enhanced lightness image is generated by transforming the lightness value in each interval to appropriate output interval according to the transformation function that depends on PSO optimized parameters, weight and standard deviation of Gaussian component and cumulative distribution of the input histogram interval. In addition, chroma compensation is applied to the resulting image to reduce washout appearance. Experimental results show that the proposed method produces a better enhanced image compared to the traditional methods. Moreover, the enhanced image is free from several side effects such as washout appearance, information loss and gradation artifacts.
