The goal is to tweak poor contrast images, like this one: And to make these pictures automatically and reasonably contrasted:   So let’s summarize, the idea is […]

Contrast enhancement – part 1/2

Luma histogram

In the previous post we created 3 channels from the RGB original picture : Y’, Cb, and Cr. We will now look that the luma histogram, so using the Y’ channel computed in previous post. What is an histogram ? It is a graphical representation of the pixel value distribution in a picture. It could […]
