We propose an artifact analysis in computational integral imaging and the image enhancement method based on the analysis using the smooth windowing technique. Blurring and lenslet artifacts, which are major problems in computational integral imaging, are defined and analyzed using a signal model. Applying a smooth and continuous window such as the triangular window to computational integral imaging reconstruction provides a dramatic improvement in terms of image quality. Experimental results are presented to show the validity of our method. To our best knowledge, this is the first trial to control a window function in computational integral imaging.
