Abstract

Reversible data hiding with automatic contrast enhancement methods provide an interoperable way to reduce the storage requirement for automatic image enhancement applications: original image can be recovered from the enhanced image without any additional information. Unlike the previous work, where the goal was to maximize the contrast, the proposed method increases the contrast to an appropriate level using an idea called brightness preservation. This is achieved by using an adaptive bin selection process based on the original brightness. Extensive experimental results verify that the enhanced images produced using the proposed method are visually and quantitatively superior than the existing work.
