ABSTRACT
The present paper involves a new method for synthesizing textures based on morphology. The present paper uses a combina-tion of pixel and patch-based methods using morphological region filling methods to synthesize textures. The present paper initially identifies number of regions and selects the seed points in the regions using Hit-miss-transform (HMT). The present paper initially detects the regions based on morphological contour segmentation approach, which preserves the well connectivity between regions. To make these thin contours more visible morphological thickening is performed, which preserves the original shape. The target regions are filled with patches from the source region possessing similar textures by using the seed point reference. Experimental results on various textures show that the present system can efficiently handle different textures especially with large regions. To test the efficacy of the proposed method PSNR values are calculated and compared with the existing methods. The experimental results clearly indicate the proposed method outperforms the existing method.
