Abstract: Image enhancement intensifies the information content of the image by accentuates the image edges and alters the visual impact of the observer. The contrast and sharpness of the images captured in underwater in general significantly deteriorates and diminish caused by the less perceptibility of the image due to the water medium’s physical properties. In this work, we propose a novel underwater image enhancement technique by review the existing underwater enhancement methods. The proposed algorithm tested on standard underwater image enhancement methods with their standard parameters. The result shows the proposed method is better than standard algorithms and techniques.
