More Information
  • Removing rain from a single image is a challenging task due to the absence of temporal information. Considering that a rainy image can be decomposed into the low-frequency (LF) and high-frequency (HF) components, where the coarse scale information is retained in the LF component and the rain streaks and texture correspond to the HF component, we propose a single image rain removal algorithm using image decomposition and a dense network. We design two task-driven sub-networks to estimate the LF and non-rain HF components of a rainy image. The high-frequency estimation sub-network employs a densely connected network structure, while the low-frequency sub-network uses a simple convolutional neural network (CNN). We add total variation (TV) regularization and LF-channel fidelity terms to the loss function to optimize the two subnetworks jointly. The method then obtains de-rained output by combining the estimated LF and non-rain HF components. Extensive experiments on synthetic and real-world rainy images demonstrate that our method removes rain streaks while preserving non-rain details, and achieves superior de-raining performance both perceptually and quantitatively.
