Nowadays a good low complexity denoising technique is necessary as pre-processing operation in many real-time practical applications. Images get corrupted with impulse noise due to the process of image transmission and image acquisition. In the process of impulse noise filtering it is necessary to preserve edges and details of the image. Also to avoid image smoothing, only corrupted pixel must be filtered. Comprehensive survey of various denoising techniques has been focused in this paper. This paper illustrates the survey of different low complexity methods such as Median, Adaptive Center Weighted Median (ACWM), Adaptive Median Filter (AMF) and high complexity methods such as Alpha-trimmed Mean Based Method (ATMBM), Differential Rank Impulse Detector (DRID) and Rank Ordered Relative Difference (RORD).The most effective technique to remove random valued impulse noise without losing useful information with pleasing denoised image is by decision-tree based impulse detector and direction oriented edge preserving image filter. This design requires low computational cost, few memory buffers, no iterations and most suited to be applied to many real-time applications. Also this design can be efficiently designed with FPGA.
