Tone-mapping operators are used to produce low dynamic range versions of the high dynamic range images, while preserving as much details as possible. We have proposed a tone-mapping operator which is built on an existing histogram adjustment technique. It incorporates certain characteristics of the human visual system, to restrain the problem of extreme contrast enhancement of certain segments and intensive compression of others, associated with histogram equalization based techniques. Test results show significant improvement over traditional histogram adjustment. The proposed method also does quite well compared to the other state of the art tone-mapping operators.
