Abstract: This paper discusses removing objects from digital images and fills the hole that is left behind. Here, we present a novel and effective algorithm that combines the advantages of these two approaches. We first note that exemplar-based texture synthesis contains the essential process required to replicate both texture and structure; the success of structure propagation, however, is highly dependent on the order in which the filling proceeds. The existing algorithms are combined to improve the efficiency for finding the line association in selected region (like solid objects). Main focus is on data term and confidence term to find line association in selected region which is to be inpainted. The region filling is done from that line associated to other section in selected region.
Keywords: Confidence term, data term, exemplar-based texture, image inpainting, region based algorithm synthesis.
