SUMMARY This paper introduces a method for restoration of missing arbitrarily shaped image segments using combined discrete orthogonal transforms (DOT). The missing segment texture is successively interpolated/extrapolated using the texture of the correctly decoded segments belonging to the same object, thus having the same texture pattern.
Our approach to image region approximation offers a complete scheme consisting of few steps. The original image is segmented using two algorithms. An unsupervised colour — texture regions segmentation method (JSEG) and feature distributions based method. Following polygonal approximation of the created regions causes the region boundaries degradation. This… (More)
