The technique of intrinsic image decomposition is based on the illumination value of the image. The histogram equalization value of the input image is calculated to increase the image contrast. In this research work, the back propagation algorithm is applied for the calculation of histogram equalization. The iterative process of back propagation is executed until error is reduced for the histogram equalization calculation. The simulation of the proposed modal is performed in MATLAB. The performance of proposed modal is compared in terms of PSNR and MSE.
