Abstract

Quite often that old documents are suffering from background damage. Examples of background damages are varying contrast, ancient document age and the documents have degraded over time due to storage conditions and the quality of the written parchment. These have damaged background for example such as: have varying contrast, smudges, dirty, presence of seeping ink from the other side of the document, uneven background. In order to make them readable, image processing offers a selection of approaches. The aim of this paper is to provide comprehensive review methods to enhance old document images with damaging background. Three kinds of enhancement methods are: (a) Image enhancement methods using binarization method or thresholding method, (b) Image enhancement methods using binarization method or thresholding method and other methods, (c) Image enhancement methods using other methods only. As conclusion, the second method has becoming more popular and has a great potential to improve in future.
