Abstract: Denoising is a prime objective technique for processing images. Image denoising techniques removes the noises present in an image without interrupting its features and contents. The image gets interrupted by channel or processing noise depending on the applications. Thus, the contaminated noises produce degradable image qualities with respect to subjective and objective approach. To overcome this, image denoising approaches were suggested. In the present research, Dual–Tree Complex Wavelet transform (DTCWT) is utilized to achieve image denoising since they perform multi resolution decomposition by two DWT trees. Soft and hard thresholding methods are used to threshold wavelet coefficients. The present research proposes a novel technique to denoise images which gives image information clearly by thresholding and optimization technique. The optimization is carried through different Meta-heuristic optimization Algorithms Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Grey-wolf optimization (GWO) algorithm. Optimization of threshold value is performed after Bayesian method and the observed output produces better results when compared to other techniques involving Visu shrink, Sure shrink and Bayes shrinkbased on peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) and visual qualities.
