Image Inpainting Based on Related Dictionary Constructed by Histogram

Qiaoqiao Li, Guoyue Chen, Xingguo Zhang, Kazuki Saruta, and Yuki Terata

Abstract—This paper proposed a new patch-wise image inpainting algorithm based on sparse representation with related dictionaries. For each target patch, i.e., the patch with corrupted parts, a related dictionary is defined, which consists of the patches in the uncorrupted area having a similar histogram with that of the patch. The related dictionary contains the most similar patches for target patch. That ensure the accuracy of the inpainting process. The target patch then can be inpainted by a sparse representation of the patches in the related dictionary. Experimental results are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

Index Terms—Image inpainting, sparse representation, histogram, related dictionaries.
