A new trimmed median-mean based filter for the removal of high density fixed value impulse noise is proposed. A fixed 3x3 window is kept constant for the increasing noise densities. The pixel is termed as noisy, if the processed pixel is between the outliers. The corrupted pixel is replaced by unsymmetrical trimmed mean or median or midpoint or mean of the current processing window based on the content of the current processing window. The proposed algorithm (PA) is employed on different

The algorithm also shows a good qualitative and quantitative result for increasing noise densities. The proposed algorithm removes salt and pepper noise at high noise densities by preserving fine details of an image.
