Recently, the NLMeans filter has been proposed by Buades et al. for the suppression of white Gaussian noise. This filter exploits the repetitive character of structures in an image, unlike conventional denoising algorithms, which typically operate in a local neighbourhood. Even though the method is quite intuitive and potentially very powerful, the PSNR and(More)
Recently, there has been a huge interest in multiresolution representations that also perform a multidirectional analysis. The Shearlet transform provides both a multiresolution analysis (such as the wavelet transform), and at the same time an optimally sparse image-independent representation for images containing edges. Existing discrete implementations of(More)
In this paper we propose several improvements to the original non-local means algorithm introduced by Buades et al. which obtains state-of-the-art denoising results. The strength of this algorithm is to exploit the repetitive character of the image in order to denoise the image unlike conventional denoising algorithms, which typically operate in a local(More)
The NLMeans filter, originally proposed by Buades et al., is a very popular filter for the removal of white Gaussian noise, due to its simplicity and excellent performance. The strength of this filter lies in exploiting the repetitive character of structures in images. However, to fully take advantage of the repetitivity a computationally extensive search(More)
In this paper we present a novel method for interpolating images with repetitive structures. Unlike other conventional interpolation methods, the unknown pixel value is not estimated based on its local surrounding neighbourhood, but on the whole image. In particularly, we exploit the repetitive character of the image. A great advantage of our proposed(More)
In this paper we present a method for interpolating images that also preserves sharp edge information. We concentrate on tackling blurred edges by mapping level curves of the image. Level curves or isophotes are spatial curves with constant intensity. The mapping of these intensities can be seen as a local contrast enhancement problem, therefore we can use(More)
We present a new method for interpolating binary images that outperforms existing techniques. Bitmapped images have a specific horizontal and vertical resolution. When we magnify such an image, we want the resolution to be increased, allowing more details in the image. However, these extra details are not present in the original image. A blowup of the image(More)
