This paper presents a derivation of a fast recursive filter for colour image restoration if degradation obeys a linear degradation model with the unknown possibly non-homogeneous point-spread function. Pixels in the vicinity of steep discontinuities are left unrestored to minimize restoration blurring effect. The degraded image is assumed to follow a causal simultaneous multidimensional regressive model and the point-spread function is estimated using the local least-square estimate.
