Image in-painting refers to a technique used for refill the missing regions of an imageand recover the corrupted image.Image in-painting or completion is a technique to restore a damaged image completely. In-painting approaches play a important role in numerous applications like object deletion, scratch deletion, Image restoration etc. Two classes of algorithms addressed this problem, these classes are: (i)Texture synthesis algorithms for creating large image regions from sample textures, and (ii) In-painting techniques for filling in small image region or gap. Various strategies have been proposed different Exemplar-based image in-painting algorithms to recover the structure of damaged images. This paper introduces a novel and efficient exemplar based Image In-painting Algorithm with investigating natural image patches. It contain in-painting techniques with respect to restoration of image. The goal of any image in-painting algorithm is to reconstruct the missing or damaged regions.
