We present a new image recovery algorithm to remove, in addition to blocking, ringing artifacts from compressed images and video. This new algorithm is based on the theory of projections onto convex sets (POCS). A new family of directional smoothness constraint sets is defined based on line processes modeling of the image edge structure. The definition of these smoothness sets also takes into account the fact that the visibility of compression artifacts in an image is spatially varying. To overcome the numerical difficulty in computing the projections onto these sets, a divide-and-conquer (DAC) strategy is introduced. According to this strategy, new smoothness sets are derived such that their projections are easier to compute. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated through numerical experiments using Motion Picture Expert Group based (MPEG-based) coders-decoders (codecs)
