Fast Query for Exemplar-Based Image Completion
In this paper, we present a fast algorithm for filling unknown regions in an image using the strategy of exemplarmatching. Unlike the original exemplar-based method using exhaustive search, we decompose exemplars into the frequency coefficients and select fewer coefficients which are the most significant to evaluate the matching score. We have also developed a local gradient-based algorithm to fill the unknown pixels in a query image block. These two techniques bring the ability of input with varied dimensions to the fast query of similar image exemplars. The fast query is based on a search-array data structure, and can be conducted very efficiently. Moreover, the evaluation of search-arrays runs in parallel maps well on the modern graphics hardware with Graphics Processing Units (GPU). The functionality of the approach has been demonstrated by experimental results on real photographs.
