Abstract

We address the problem of inpainting noisy photographs. We present a recursive image recovery scheme based on the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) to simultaneously inpaint identified damaged portions in an image and suppress film-grain noise. Inpainting of the missing observations is guided by a mask-dependent reconstruction of the image edges. Prediction within the UKF is based on a discontinuity-adaptive Markov random field prior that attempts to preserve edges while achieving noise reduction in uniform regions. We demonstrate the capability of the proposed method with many examples.
