The authors propose an iterative block reduction technique based on the theory of a projection onto convex sets. The idea is to impose a number of constraints on the coded image in such a way as to restore it to its original artifact-free form. One such constraint can be derived by exploiting the fact that the transform-coded image suffering from blocking effects contains high-frequency vertical and horizontal artifacts corresponding to vertical and horizontal discontinuities across boundaries of neighboring blocks. Another constraint has to be with the quantization intervals of the transform coefficients. Specifically, the decision levels associated with transform coefficient quantizers can be used as lower and upper bounds on transform coefficients, which in turn define boundaries of the convex set for projection. A few examples of the proposed approach are presented
