Scratch detection and removal from static images using simple statistics and genetic algorithms

Abstract

This paper investigates the removal of line scratches from old movies and gives a twofold contribution. First, it presents simple technique for detecting the scratches, based on an analysis of the statistics of the grey levels. Second, the scratches removal is approached as an optimisation problem, and it is solved by using a genetic algorithm. The method… (More)
