Enhancement of Underwater Imaging with the algorithm of the Advanced Multi-scale Retinex
For the problem of the absorbing and scattering for Red in underwater imaging, the AMSR is put awarded. The red information of the underwater imaging is read by Matlab. The image enhancement used by Advanced Multi-scale Retinex algorithm. The Advanced Multi-scale Retinex algorithm is with the truncation of k time’s standard deviation and the figure between the parameter k and the sigma is made. The best k is got for the images of various depths and the best k is between 1 to 1.5. The result shows that the AMSR is good method of enhancement for underwater imaging.
