Image Processing is one of the major areas of research. Images are often corrupted with different types of noise such as Gaussian noise, Poisson noise, Salt and Pepper noise, Speckle noise etc.The present work analyses the performance of the median filter with respect to different padding methods in the context of removing salt and pepper noise.Peak Signal-to-Noise ratio and Mean Squared Error have been considered as parameters for performance evaluation. The results obtained show that the Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio and Mean Squared Error obtained between the original image and the filtered image obtained by applying median filter with symmetric padding method on the image corrupted with salt and pepper noise is same as the Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio and Mean Squared Error obtained between the original image and the filtered image obtained by applying median filter with replicate padding method on the image corrupted with salt and pepper noise respectively.
