Among various developments in the field of computer vision, single image super-resolution of images is one of the most essential tasks. However, compared to the integer magnification model for super-resolution, research on arbitrary magnification has been overlooked. In addition, the importance of single image super-resolution at arbitrary magnification is emphasized for tasks such as object recognition and satellite image magnification. In this study, we propose a model that performs arbitrary magnification while retaining the advantages of integer magnification. The proposed model extends the integer magnification image to the target magnification in the discrete cosine transform (DCT) spectral domain. The broadening of the DCT spectral domain results in a lack of high-frequency components. To solve this problem, we propose a high-frequency attention network for arbitrary magnification so that high-frequency information can be restored. In addition, only high-frequency components are extracted from the image with a mask generated by a hyperparameter in the DCT domain. Therefore, the high-frequency components that have a substantial impact on image quality are recovered by this procedure. The proposed framework achieves the performance of an integer magnification and correctly retrieves the high-frequency components lost between the arbitrary magnifications. We experimentally validated our model’s superiority over state-of-the-art models.

Image super-resolution is getting popularity these days in diverse fields, such as medical applications and industrial applications. The accuracy is imperative on image super-resolution. The traditional approaches for local edge feature point extraction algorithms are merely based on edge points for super-resolution images. The traditional algorithms are used to calculate the geometric center of gravity of the edge line when it is near, resulting in a low feature recall rate and unreliable results. In order to overcome these problems of lower accuracy in the existing system, an attempt is made in this research work to propose a new fast extraction algorithm for local edge features of super-resolution images. This paper primarily focuses on the super-resolution image reconstruction model, which is utilized to extract the super-resolution image. The edge contour of the super-resolution image feature is extracted based on the Chamfer distance function. Then, the geometric center of gravity of the closed edge line and the nonclosed edge line are calculated. The algorithm emphasizes on polarizing the edge points with the center of gravity to determine the local extreme points of the upper edge of the amplitude-diameter curve and to determine the feature points of the edges of the super-resolution image. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm consumes 0.02 seconds to extract the local edge features of super-resolution images with an accuracy of up to 96.3%. The experimental results show that our proposed algorithm is an efficient method for the extraction of local edge features from the super-resolution images.

Recently, many super-resolution reconstruction (SR) feedforward networks based on deep learning have been proposed. These networks enable the reconstructed images to achieve convincing results. However, due to a large amount of computation and parameters, SR technology is greatly limited in devices with limited computing power. To trade-off the network performance and network parameters. In this paper, we propose the efficient image super-resolution network via Self-Calibrated Feature Fuse, named SCFFN, by constructing the self-calibrated feature fuse block (SCFFB). Specifically, to recover the high-frequency detail information of the image as much as possible, we propose SCFFB by self-transformation and self-fusion of features. In addition, to accelerate the network training while reducing the computational complexity of the network, we employ an attention mechanism to elaborate the reconstruction part of the network, called U-SCA. Compared with the existing transposed convolution, it can greatly reduce the computation burden of the network without reducing the reconstruction effect. We have conducted full quantitative and qualitative experiments on public datasets, and the experimental results show that the network achieves comparable performance to other networks, while we only need fewer parameters and computational resources.
