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 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)
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)
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)
In this paper, we present a first-order primal-dual algorithm for tackling the joint demosaicking and deconvolution problem. The proposed algorithm exploits the sparsity of both discrete gradient (TV) and shearlet coefficients as prior knowledge. In order to deal with this sparsity across the color channels, we first decorrelate the signals in color space(More)
In this paper, we present a new method for High Dynamic Range (HDR) reconstruction based on a set of multiple photographs with different exposure times. While most existing techniques take a deterministic approach by assuming that the acquired low dynamic range (LDR) images are noise-free, we explicitly model the photon arrival process by assuming sensor(More)
