A technique for enhancing the perceptual sharpness of an image is described. The enhancement algorithm augments the frequency content of the image using shape-invariant properties of edges across scale by using a nonlinearity that generates phase coherent higher harmonics. The procedure utilizes the Laplacian transform and the Laplacian pyramid image representation. Results are presented depicting the power-spectra augmentation and the visual enhancement of several images. Simplicity of computations and ease of implementation allow for real-time applications such as high-definition television (HDTV)
