Digital image processing has been operated widely in industrial for correct automated inspection. Image processing is one such method that involves computer processing of pictures or images that have been rehabilitated to numerical form. This paper grants a critical review of the comprehensive work of digital image processing and analysis and their application to portion twist and its distribution in yarns, weave pattern, yarn color. Procedures of spatial & frequency domain use to citation twist angle and orientation of fiber on yarn surface correspondingly. Characteristics of weave extracted by Obliqueness (OB) and Orthogonality (OR) and yarn color design gained by diffused and replicated images.
