Many example-based imageprocessing algorithms operate on image patches (texture synthesis, resolution enhancement, image denoising, and so on). However, inaccessibility to a large, varied collection of image patches has hindered widespread adoption of these methods. The authors describe the construction of a database of one trillion image patches and demonstrate its research utility.
