Analysis of document images for information recovery has been exceptionally prominent in the later past. Wide collection of information, which has been generally put away on paper, is as of now being changed over into electronic form for superior storage and intelligent processing. This needs processing of documents by utilizing different processing strategies. Pre-processing techniques are advantageous in the recognition of document images as well as medical images. The most significant goal of image recognition system is to perform operations on images to find patterns and to retrieve information from the images for feature extraction process. In this paper, we emphasize on various techniques for pre-processing an image that aids in the further process of Image recognition.
