  • Patent number: 10521918
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and device for filtering texture, using a patch shift. A patch-based texture filtering method for removing texture from an image comprises the steps of: distinguishing a structure edge from patches for each pixel of an input image; and performing a patch shift for the patches of each pixel, on the basis of structure edge information of each of the patches to select a representative patch of each pixel. Accordingly, the method can generate a result image in which texture has been automatically and completely removed from a piece of the input image.
