Image denoising while preserving image features is a key problem in image processing and computer vision. This letter proposes an adaptive mixed method for image restoration. First, this method decomposes a given image as the sum of two components: geometric structure and oscillating pattern according to Meyer's theory. Second, a coupled bidirectional diffusion equation is used to restore the structure part, and a nonlocal means filter is used to remove noise in the oscillating part. Experimental results show advantages of this method in feature-preserving denoising.
