A deblocking method based on projection onto convex sets (POCS) is proposed to reduce blocking artifacts in compressed images coded by the block discrete cosine transform. The method differs from existing POCS-based methods in three aspects. Firstly, the adjustment of a pixel's intensity is determined by local properties of the pixel. Secondly, three locally adaptive constraint sets are introduced to improve deblocking results. Thirdly, the human visual system modeling and relaxed projections are incorporated to make pixels adjust appropriately. The method is tested on typical images with excellent results.
