Abstract: It is well known that low bit rate block-based discrete cosine transform coded image exhibits visually annoying coding artifacts. In this paper, we proposed a projection onto convex sets (PCOS)-based deblocking algorithm using a novel region smoothness constraint set for graphic images containing objects with smooth regions. The smoothness constraint set is obtained by an explicit modeling of smooth regions in the image using a spatially adaptive thin-plate spline. In contrast to most deblocking algorithms which enforce smoothness just around the 8×8 block boundaries, our algorithm enforces smoothness in regions which could possibly span several blocks. We showed that convergence of our algorithm could be reached within one iteration. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated visually and quantitatively in term of peak signal-to-noise ratios and the mean squared difference of slope metric, which measures the impact of the blocking effects, for several graphic images. The results show that our algorithm can effectively suppress blockiness in smooth regions while still preserving the sharpness of object edges.
