Abstract: Balinese papyrus (Lontar) is one of the most popular media to write for more than a hundred years in Indonesia. Balinese papyrus are used to document things that are considered important in the past. Most of the balinese papyrus suffered damage caused by weathering, edible fungus and insects making it is difficult to read. One of the efforts made to preserve the existence of balinese papyrus is to perform digitization of it. The problems most often encountered in the process of digitizing the image of the balinese papyrus is less good results as there is noise caused by its conditions that have been damaged and the uneven distribution illumination in this part of the image. In this study the authors propose to combine homomorphic filtering with adaptive median filtering to perform image enhancement. Surve results obtained show the percentage of the average respondents stated that the image enhancement results are good is 83.4%, the percentage of the average respondents stated that the image enhancement results are very good is 4% and the percentage of the average respondents stated that the image enhancement results are enough is 12, 6%.
