Image thinning is one of important steps of fingerprint preprocessing. Most of fingerprint recognition algorithms checked the characteristic points on thinning image. In this paper, we discover some shortages in OPTA and mathematical morphology thinning algorithm and find out the reasons for some shortages such as many glitches and snags, defective thinning, and so on. A new improved algorithm is proposed in the paper, which is an ideal algorithm because it is faster, produces less glitch, and thins completely.
