This paper describes a method of enhancement of grayscale and color image in the frequency domain by the pair of two elliptic discrete Fourier transforms (EDFT). Unlike the traditional discrete Fourier transform (DFT), the EDFT is parameterized and the parameter defines ellipses (not circles) around which the input data are rotated. Methods of the traditional DFT are widely used in image enhancement, and the transform rotates data of images around the circles. The presented method of image enhancement proposes processing images on different set of ellipses for the direct and inverse transforms. Our preliminary experimental examples show effectiveness of the proposed method. The Illustrative examples of image enhancement are given.
