When directly applied to images with different scales, scale invariant feature transform (SIFT) matching performance decreases significantly. In this reported work, this phenomenon is demonstrated and a simple method to increase the performance of SIFT matching is proposed. The proposed method includes preprocessing the images before matching and is compared to previously proposed solutions which only eliminate false matches.
