Edge detection is a digital image processing technique to find the boundaries or edges of an image or object through brightness discontinuity. There are many operators to get boundaries or edges but we need more effective and accurate methods.  This paper will provide a comparison of hybrid techniques that combine second-order derivative techniques Log and Canny,  With Conventional Sobel, Prewitt, Roberts, Canny and Log Operators  Edge Detector Techniques With regard to visual inspection, Mean Square Error (MSE), Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), signal to noise ratio (SNR), peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR), mean-absolute error (MAE) and Bit error, etc.
