Abstract : This paper presents a new method for exemplar-based image inpainting using transformed patches. We build upon a recent affine invariant self-similarity measure which automatically transforms patches to compare them in an appropriate manner. As a consequence, it intrinsically extends the set of available source patches to copy information from. When comparing two patches, instead of searching for the appropriate patch transformation in a highly dimensional parameter space, our approach allows us to determine a single transformation from the texture content in both patches. We incorporate the affine invariant similarity measure in a variational formulation for inpainting and present an algorithm together with experimental results illustrating this approach.
