Noise Removal in Image Using LPG-PCA (Local Pixel GroupingPrinciple Component Analysis) Algorithm
IOSR Journal of Electronics and Communication Engineering
In this paper an effective algorithm for noise removal in an image is obtained by using PCA (principal component analysis) with LPG (Local Pixel Grouping). This technique ensures the preservation of image local structure. Here the pixels and its neighbors are treated as vector variables whose training samples are selected from local windows using block matching based LPG. This ensures only the similar samples are selected for the PCA transformation so that the desired local characteristics are
... haracteristics are only preserved with considerable noise reduction. The LPG -PCA algorithm is performed twice to enhance the quality of an image. The first iteration would remove the noise considerably and the second iteration would preserve the image features like edges etc. The LPG-PCA algorithm will adaptively adjust the noise level of an image unlike WT (Wavelet Transformation). Several experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
