Purpose: Understand the current state of knowledge in the field of digital image processing. Identify key concepts, theories, and methodologies that have been explored in previous research. Explore the various techniques and algorithms used in digital image processing. Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of existing methods. Identify gaps or limitations in current techniques. Provide a context for the research by summarizing and synthesizing relevant studies. Show how different studies contribute to the overall understanding of digital image processing. Identify gaps in the existing literature that your research can address. Determine areas where further investigation is needed. Offer a foundation for discussion and interpretation of your results in the context of existing literature. Enable you to relate your findings to the broader field of digital image processing.

Design/Methodology/Approach: Clearly define the scope of your literature review (e.g., specific techniques, applications, or periods). State the objectives of the literature review, such as identifying trends, evaluating methodologies, or addressing research gaps. Develop a comprehensive search strategy to identify relevant literature. Utilize academic databases, journals, conferences, and other reputable sources. Use a combination of keywords, Boolean operators, and controlled vocabulary (e.g., MeSH terms) to refine search queries. Systematically review and select relevant literature based on the established criteria. Document the process, including databases searched, keywords used, and reasons for inclusion/exclusion. Identify gaps in the existing literature and propose potential avenues for future research. Discuss the implications of these gaps for the advancement of knowledge in the field

Findings/Results: Literature often discusses various image enhancement techniques such as histogram equalization, contrast stretching, and spatial filtering. Researchers explore the effectiveness of these techniques in improving image quality for different applications. Segmentation methods, including thresholding, region-based segmentation, and clustering algorithms, are frequently discussed. Object recognition and classification techniques using features like texture, color, and shape are common topics. Different image compression algorithms, such as JPEG, JPEG2000, and various wavelet-based methods, are often compared in terms of compression ratio and quality. The literature might address real-time image processing challenges and solutions, especially in applications like video surveillance, autonomous vehicles, and augmented reality.

Originality/Value: Ensure that the literature review comprehensively covers key and recent works in digital image processing. This includes foundational theories, algorithms, and applications. Identify seminal papers, landmark studies, and recent advancements to create a timeline of the field's development.

Paper Type: Review of existing literature
