An innovative technique for the detection and elimination of cracks in digitized paintings and images is proposed in this paper. Cracks degrade the quality of painting as well as authenticity of painting becomes questionable. In the proposed method the cracks are detected by thresholding the result of the morphological top-hat transform. Further, misidentified cracks are detected either by involving user intervention or by using a semi-automatic procedure based on region growing technique… CONTINUE READING
