In a local region of a color image, the color distribution often takes the form of a linear line in the RGB space. This property is called “Color Line” and we propose a denoising method based on this property. When a noise is added on an image, its color distribution spreads from the Color Line. The denoising is achieved by reducing the spread. In conventional methods, Color Line is assumed to be only a single line, but actual distribution takes various shapes such as a single line, two lines, and a plane and so on. In our method, we estimate the distribution in more detail using plane approximation and denoise each patch by reducing the spread depending on the Color Line types. In this way, we can achieve better denoising results than a conventional method.
