For optimal computer vision outcomes, attention to image pre-processing is required so that one can improve image features by eliminating unwanted falsification. This book emphasizes various image pre-processing methods which are necessary for early extraction of features from the image. Effective use of image pre-processing can offer advantages and resolve complications that finally results in improved detection of local and global features. Different approaches for image enrichments and improvements are conferred in this book that will affect the feature analysis depending on how the procedures are employed.
