A novel constrained texture synthesis approach is proposed to enhance the visual quality of a degraded image by reconstructing its high frequency texture content. In low-bit-rate image and video compression and communication systems, high frequency transformed coefficients are often lost due to aggressive quantization or un-even error protection schemes. However, with the block-based encoding and transmission methods, the amount of high frequency texture loss is uneven between adjacent blocks.
