The new image processing technique modifies an image by 1) locating certain features of the image, such as the boundaries of objects in the image, 2) manipulating such located features 3)adding the modified features to the original image to produce an enhanced image. The image-enhancing practice can be employed to both gray scale pictures and color pictures. Improvement of the visibility of video images for people with visual impairment (cataract or macular degeneration).
