Abstract

We propose a fast and generic spatial patch blending technique that can be embedded within any kind of pattern-based inpainting algorithm. This extends the works of [Daisy et al. 2013] on the visual enhancement of inpainting results. We optimize this blending algorithm so that the processing time is roughly divided by a factor ten, without any loss of perceived quality. Moreover, we provide a free and simple-to-use software to make this easily reproducible.
