The reduction of the noise of the images always prevails as a challenge in the field of image processing. An image obtained after the elimination of noise has a higher clarity in terms of interpretation and study analysis in different fields such as medical, satellite and radar. This research work examines the various methods of de-noise images in the spatial domain and a comparison between several filtering techniques is carried out in the presence of different types of noise to achieve a high-quality image and to find the most suitable and reliable method for De-noising images. performance of all the filters is compared using parameters such as Mean Square Error (MSE), peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR).
