The unsharp mask technique emphasize the boundary of the image by adding the boundary of the original image. This technique improves quality by emphasize its boundaries but produce rough image from image noise. The multi channel unsharp mask is possible to enhance entire contrast of the image by applying at least two channels of unsharp mask. However, There is limitations to strengthen boundaries even if the scale strongly applies the multi channel unsharp mask technique. To solve this problem, linear scaling to nonlinear scaling by applying exponential function to existing multi channel unsharp mask technique. Experimental results show enhanced contrast for desired area because of control scaling in details compared with existing unsharp mask technique.
