Halftoning is a process that deliberately injects noise into the original image in order to obtain visually pleasing output images with a smaller number of bits per pixel for displaying or printing purposes. In this paper, a novel inverse halftoning method is proposed to restore a continuous tone image from the given halftone image. A set theoretic formulation is used where three sets are defined using the prior information about the problem. A new space domain projection is introduced assuming the halftoning is performed with error diffusion, and the error diffusion filter kernel is known. The space domain, frequency domain, and space-scale domain projections are used alternately to obtain a feasible solution for the inverse halftoning problem which does not have a unique solution
