Paper Abstract

The similarity measurement of the bilateral filtering can’t indicate the difference between pixels accurately in the dense texture region. It causes the smoothing effect seriously, thereby reducing the edge preserving properties of the bilateral filtering. This paper presents a new weighted function of the bilateral filtering. It involves an additional range kernel using the relative difference between pixels. The range kernel operates differently by acting on the pixel gray intensities or colors. And it uses the reciprocal kernel for the approximation of the standard Gaussian weight value. Experimental results suggest that it significantly preserves more details than the classical bilateral filtering in edge or dense texture regions.
