Contrast enhancement is an important preprocessing step for the analysis of images. The main aim of contrast enhancement techniques is to increase the visibility of the objects by modifying the spatial characteristics of the image. In this paper, phase transition based contrast enhancement framework is proposed to overcome the limitations of existing image enhancement techniques. The proposed image enhancement framework transforms the changes in image phase into the variations of magnitude to enhance the structural details of the image and to improve visibility. In addition, the concept of Selective Variation (SV) technique is introduced and enhancement parameters are optimized using SV. The experimental studies that were carried out on TID2008 dataset, show that the proposed scheme obtains promising results on contrast enhancement.
