The quality of images is often hampered due to the presence of noise. There are different image denoising techniques that can be used. One such technique is the use of filters. Filters are used for enhancing the appearance of images by eliminating unwanted information. We provide a detailed comparative analysis of different filters that can be used in denoising images containing various noises, in this paper. Four different noises, Speckle, Salt and Pepper, Gaussian, and Poisson, have been considered and different filters like Bilateral, Wiener, Mean, and Median have been applied to images containing each of them. The different filtered output images have been compared with the original image using their structural similarity index. Through observation and experimentation, new combinations of filters like Multiple Mean and Median-Mean have been introduced. The processing time has been calculated to decide upon the performance of different filters. A conclusion has been drawn as to which filter has to be used for denoising images containing different noises.
