Photographs and images often have regions which are in some sense flawed. Often, there may be a stain or an undesired feature covering a significant portion of the image, and an algorithm that can "fix" the image is desired. We propose a technique based on Heeger and Bergen's texture synthesis algorithm (1995). By integrating a composition step into the aforementioned algorithm one portion of the image can be substituted with a synthetic texture derived from another portion of the image. The…

Image Enhancement Techniques by Texture Synthesis

This dissertation considers Texture Synthesis for Gray scale images by Pixel based and Patch based texture Synthesis and deals with cleaning the color images byTexture Synthesis.

Object Duplication in an Image using Texture Synthesis Technique

This paper has presented a new algorithm to apply texture synthesis for objects duplication in an image to increase the image objects in the same image by randomly picking up any image portion or the selected portion of the image and matching it with the similar tiles of the neighboring image portion by texture synthesis technique.

Texture Synthesis From Photographs

This work would like to extract the input texture from any surface from within an arbitrary photograph, which introduces several challenges: Only parts of the photograph are covered with the texture of interest, perspective and scene geometry introduce distortions, and the texture is non‐uniformly sampled during the capture process.

Replicated Texture Editing

The capabilities of the texture editing approach including operations for replicated painting, cloning and warping are summarized, and recent enhancements including usercontrolled sharpness, Boolean similarity expressions and the adaptive synthesis of cloning textures are detailed.

Region filling and object removal by exemplar-based image inpainting

The simultaneous propagation of texture and structure information is achieved by a single, efficient algorithm that combines the advantages of two approaches: exemplar-based texture synthesis and block-based sampling process.

On the Editing of Images: Selecting, Cutting and Filling-in

A modification of existing texture synthesis methods to create texture in the holes left by the cutting of previously selected areas of the image, constrained so that it creates boundaries between regions that are similar to existing ones and fills-in the created regions, yet producing random enough textures so that the new image looks realistic.

Region Completion in a Single Image

A novel approach to achieve the completion in three steps of region completion by measuring the adjusted appearance of the source patch with the target patch and enforcing the searching area in the neighborhood around the previous source patch.

Variable Neighbourhood Texture Synthesis with Patch Initialisation

This work presents a method of synthesising a texture using dynamic neighbourhood matching, which uses patches as a seed with which to guide the matching process, and which has reduced smudging, and fewer jagged drawn out texture anomalies that are problematic in existing pixel-based methods.

On the innovation and application of texture synthesis technique in image processing

Atexture synthesis method based on multiple samples, which provides a general texture synthesis method and a deeper discussion and comprehension of the arithmetic are raised.

A best-first algorithm in which the confidence in the synthesized pixel values is propagated in a manner similar to the propagation of information in inpainting, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the algorithm in removing large occluding objects as well as thin scratches.



Pyramid-based texture analysis/synthesis

This paper describes a method for synthesizing images that match the texture appearance of a given digitized sample, based on a model of human texture perception, and has potential to be a practically useful tool for graphics applications.

A multiresolution spline with application to image mosaics

A multiresolution spline technique for combining two or more images into a larger image mosaic is defined and coarse features occur near borders are blended gradually over a relatively large distance without blurring or otherwise degrading finer image details in the neighborhood of th e border.

A Context Sensitive Texture Nib

Commonly, a “nib” refers to the point of a pen. When used with reference to painting packages, a nib refers to the pattern with which one draws. We introduce a technique for painting with smart nibs

Combining frequency and spatial domain information for fast interactive image noise removal

This paper describes its fast iterative algorithm, based on a general framework of projection onto convex sets (POCS), that can reconstruct many contiguous noisy pixels in areas with large patterns while maintaining continuity of features such as lines.

The Design and Use of Steerable Filters

The authors present an efficient architecture to synthesize filters of arbitrary orientations from linear combinations of basis filters, allowing one to adaptively steer a filter to any orientation,

Shiftable Multi-scale TransformsEero

Orthogonal wavelet transforms have recently become a popular representation for multi-scale signal and image analysis. One of the major drawbacks of these representations is their lack of translation

Shiftable multiscale transforms

Two examples of jointly shiftable transforms that are simultaneously shiftable in more than one domain are explored and the usefulness of these image representations for scale-space analysis, stereo disparity measurement, and image enhancement is demonstrated.
