Efficient impulse noise removal is an important issue in image processing. It is caused error in the data communication generated in noisy sensors or communication channels or by error during the data capture from digital cameras, scanning i.e. one form of image is converted to another form. In this paper we review on generalized classical and fuzzy filters for good impulse noise reduction, analysis and compare the various filter performance such as mean square error, peak signal to noise ratio as well as in terms of visual quality and low execution time.
