Summary: 
Considering the real existent fact of the ideal edge and the learning style of image analogy without reference parameters, a blind image recovery algorithm using a self-adaptive learning method is proposed in this paper. We show that a specific local image patch with degradation characteristic can be utilized for restoring the whole image. In the training process, a clear counterpart of the local image patch is constructed based on the ideal edge assumption so that identification of the Point Spread Function is no longer needed. Experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method on remote sensing images.
