An image segmentation is an area in which image is subdivided into sub-regions for extracting characteristics of images which will help to analysis in various applications. For getting accuracy sharp changes of intensity is an important issue which is known as edge detection. In this paper various spatial edge detection methods and fuzzy based edge detection method has described and spatial edge detection methods and fuzzy if-then-else are compared to know which method will be more suitable to find edges for the enhancement of images.
