Image inpainting technique is that repairs damaged area or remove areas in an image. In order to deal with this kind of problems, not only a robust image inpainting algorithm should be used, technique of structure generation is also needs to adopt in inpainting procedure. In this paper, we extend an exemplar-based image inpainting method by incorporating Bézier curves to construct missing edge information. Before we apply our inpainting procedure to a damaged image, mean shift segmentation is used to extract contours of each region. After the structure information of an image is determined, destroyed contours will be connected in curve fitting process and damaged regions will be inpainted by using exemplar-based inpainting method. The experimental results show that our proposed method could deal with several kinds of pictures well.
