Adaptive Contrast Enhancement: Basic Examples

Two notes: (1) These images have been brightened a bit, and those on the left should look quite dark; (2) Although the new colour process is an improvement, you would probably not use full-strength on a colour image, as shown on the right.

The original image, in grayscale and colour, is on the left. Fully `adaptive histogram equalized' versions are on the right.
