In this paper, a new one-stage nonlinear directional derivative scheme has been proposed for edge detection. The directional edge detection method was applied to gray and color images. The results were compared to three wellknown conventional edge detectors namely Canny, Prewitt, and Sobel. According to results, the directional derivative method is an efficient edge detection tool especially in capturing details.
