Fingerprint image enhancement is a preprocessing step in fingerprint recognition applications. In this paper, an improved algorithm for enhancement of fingerprint image is proposed. The proposed method includes additional steps of adaptive background subtraction and adaptive filtering to the previous fingerprint image enhancement methods based on Gabor filter. The adaptive filtering step enhances the edges of the fingerprints.
