The use of frames and matching pursuits techniques for signal representation are receiving increased attention due to their potential in various signal processing appli cations. Good design algorithms for block-oriented and overlapping frames have been published [1, 2, 3]. In this paper we demonstrate a novel technique for denoising of images. The technique uses overlapping frames and Fully Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (FOMP) as in [3], in conjunction with soft thresholding. Experiments are done on image with additive Gaussian noise and on JPEG compressed images. The experiments are compared with wavelet denoising and median ļ¬ltering. The results shows very good potential for denoising using overlapping frames (dictionaries).
