Abstract.  We present a technique for automated restoration of digital images obtained from faded photographic prints. The proposed defading technique uses our early proposed image contrast enhancement algorithm based on a contrast measure of images in the Chebyshev moment transform domain. Obtained experimental results demonstrate some advantages of the technique as compared to other widely used image enhancement methods.
