In-painting is a type of art that rebuilt the missing data in an image. There are several proposed algorithms for this purpose in which exemplar based approach is the most broadly used. The objective of in-painting is to synthesize the missing part of an image in such a way that it looks suitable to the eye of viewer who is known to the original. Image inpainting is widely used to restore a damaged paintings and photographs or remove unwanted objects. Criminisi's exemplar-based inpainting combined "texture synthesis" and PDE-based inpainting that showed great efficiency on removal of large objects. However, this approach has certain weakness such as high time cost, visual inconsistency in some cases. In this paper, we improve the Criminsi's exemplar-based inpainting based on search strategy and color transfer. This new method is also suitable to all exemplar-based methods and the results show its effectiveness.
