Abstract: Specularities, shadows, and occlusions are phenomena that commonly occur in images and cause a loss of information. This paper addresses the task to detect and remove all these phenomena simultaneously in order to obtain a corrected image with all information visible and recognizable. The proposed (semi-)automatic algorithm utilizes two input images that depict a planar object. The images can be acquired without special equipment (such as flash systems) or restrictions on the spatial camera layout. Experiments were performed for various combinations of objects, phenomena occurring, and capturing conditions. The algorithm perfectly detects and removes specularities in all examined cases. Shadows and occlusions are satisfactorily detected and removed with minimal user intervention in the majority of the performed experiments.
