In this paper, we propose a highly accurate inpainting algorithm which reconstructs an image from a fraction of its pixels. Our algorithm is inspired by the recent progress of non-local image processing techniques following the idea of ‘grouping and collaborative filtering’. In our framework, we first match and group similar patches in the input image, and then convert the problem of estimating missing values for the stack of matched patches to the problem of low-rank matrix completion, and… CONTINUE READING
