This paper has proposed a new integrated image enhancement algorithm by integrating non linear image enhancement technique with dynamic restoration. Image processing plays a vital role in visualization application. It improves the visibility of poor images. Different techniques have been proposed so far. To improve image quality image enhancement can selectively enhance and restrain some information about image. It is a method which decreases image noise, eliminate artifacts, and maintain details. Its purpose is to amplify certain image features for analysis, diagnosis and display. The overall objective of this paper is to propose an integrated technique which will integrate the nonlinear enhancement technique with the gamma correction and dynamic restoration technique. The proposed algorithm is implemented in MATLAB. Experimental results have shown quite significant results over the available methods.
