Total variation based methods are widely applied for image enhancement and particularly for de-noising. The majority of these is designed for a specific noise model. The alternative total variation based approach proposed here can deal with multiple noise models via two-pass iterative algorithm basing on total variation. The first pass is designed for draft denoising and to detect noise region. The second pass restores the noise region by total variation based inpainting. Experiments on Salt & Pepper, Gaussian, Speckle, Poisson, and Impulse noise models demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
