AbstractImage inpainting is the process of recovering missing or deteriorated data within the digital images and videos in a plausible way. It has become an important topic in the area of image processing, which leads to the understanding of the textural and structural information within the images. Image inpainting has many different applications, such as image/video restoration, text/object removal, texture synthesis, and transmission error concealment. In recent years, many algorithms have been developed to solve the image inpainting problem, which can be roughly grouped into four categories, partial differential equation-based inpainting, exemplar-based inpainting, transform domain inpainting, and hybrid image inpainting. However, the existing algorithms do not work well when the missing region to be inpainted is large, and when there are textural and structural information needed to be recovered. To address this inpainting problem, we propose multiple algorithms, 1) perceptually aware image inpainting based on the perceptual-fidelity aware mean squared error metric, 2) image inpainting using nonlocal texture matching and nonlinear filtering, and 3) multiresolution exemplar-based image inpainting. The experimental results show that our proposed algorithms outperform other existing algorithms with respect to both qualitative analysis and observer studies when inpainting the missing regions of images.
