Paper Abstract

The classical bilateral filter smoothes images and preserves edges using a nonlinear combination of surrounding pixels. Our modified bilateral filter advances this approach by sharpening edges as well. This method uses geometrical and photometric distance to select pixels for combined low and high pass filtering. It also uses a simple window filter to reduce computational complexity.
