Abstract: Inpainting is a technique of rendering an image in an undetectable form. Inpainting technique is applicable for restoration of scratched photograph, removal of undesirable objects , reconstruction of 3D surfaces etc. Here we are using a modified exemplar based inpainting [1] to remove occlusion from an image. Here we are using a modified data term from gradient based data term. Here in this paper we remove object(s) from digital photographs, and then fill the hole with information extracted from the surrounding area. The modifications we introduced are, changing the window size after each iteration and a modified data term is used.
