Color Image Restoration Using Morphological Detectors and Adaptive Filter
A two phased impulse restoration scheme for color images is presented. In the first phase of the proposed image restoration scheme it detects the pixels corrupted with impulse noise by employing the tools of mathematical morphology and then in the next phase a linear adaptive mean filter attempts to remove those noisy pixels in an efficient manner. Experimental results indicate that the proposed scheme can suppress impulse noise effectively in color images. This provides a better restoration performance than many other filters used for removing impulse noise from color images.
