Pre-Processing > Histogram Equalization

Equalizes image brightness and contrast across the image by performing different histogram scaling in each tile of grid of tiles whose size is defined by user [1].

1. Method

Controls desired histogram shape for the image tiles

  • Uniform: Flat-histogram
  • Rayleigh: Bell-shaped histogram
  • Exponential: Curved histogram

2. Tiles

Number of tiles to split the image into in each direction (Recommended: 8)

3. Enhancement

Adjusts amount of contrast enhancement. Higher values result in more contrast (Recommended: 0.01)
