Abstract: The quality of fingerprint or fingerprint verification depends on the quality of the fingerprint image. Most of the fingerprint management algorithms depend on the features which are extracted based on the minutiae of the fingerprints. The quality of minutiae is depends on how good the fingerprint images. The background and foreground of the images are also effect the results of the fingerprint images. Fingerprint segmentation algorithms are used to extract the finger print image from background. In this paper we are presenting the two fingerprint segmentation algorithms which are the modifications of existing mean and variance based approach and gradient based approach.
