Abstract: In this paper we present a novel method for interpolating images and we introduce the concept of non-local interpolation. Unlike other conventional interpolation methods, the estimation of the unknown pixel values is not only based on its local surrounding neighbourhood, but on the whole image (non-locally). In particularly, we exploit the repetitive character of the image. A great advantage of our proposed approach is that we have more information at our disposal, which leads to better estimates of the unknown pixel values. Results show the effectiveness of non-local interpolation and its superiority at very large magnifications to other interpolation methods.
