Abstract

Image completion is the process of filling missing regions of an image based on the known sections of the image. This technique is useful for repairing damaged images or removing unwanted objects from images. Research on this technique is plentiful. This thesis compares three different approaches to image completion. In addition, a new method is proposed which combines features from two of these algorithms to improve efficiency.
