This paper proposes a new approach to enhance peak signal to noise ratio of highly corrupted image affected by impulse noise. The proposed technique is implemented using an adaptive median filter and the bacterial foraging optimization (BFO) technique. The adaptive median filter is used to identify pixels affected by noise and replace them with median value to keep the information uncorrupted. The BFO technique minimizes errors between adaptive median filter output image and noisy image to maintain an error percentage of 0.0001. It has been observed that results of the proposed method are superior to conventional methods in terms of perceptual image quality as well as clarity and smoothness in edge regions of the resultant image. This technique can remove the salt-and-pepper noise of highly corrupted images with a noise as high as 90%.
