As the display resolution increases, an effective image upscaling technique is required for recent displays such as an ultra-high-definition display. Even though various image super-resolution algorithms have been developed for the image upscaling, they still do not provide the excellent performance in the ultra-high-definition display. This is because the texture creation capability in the algorithms is not sufficient. Hence, this paper proposes an efficient texture creation algorithm for enhancing the texture super-resolution performance. For the texture creation, we build a database with random patches in the off-line processing and we then synthesize fine textures by employing guided filter in the on-line real-time processing, based on the database. Experimental results show that the proposed texture creation algorithm provides sharper and finer textures compared with the existing state-of-the-art algorithms.
