Image-restoration applications where multiple distorted versions of the same original image are available are considered. A general adaptive iterative restoration algorithm is derived based on regularization techniques. The adaptivity of the algorithm is introduced in two ways: a) by a constraint operator which incorporates properties of the response of the human visual system into the restoration process, and b) by a weight matrix which assigns greater importance for the deconvolution process to areas of high spatial activity than to areas of low spatial activity. Different degrees of trust are assigned to the various distorted images, depending on the amount of noise on each image. The proposed algorithms are general and can be used for any type of linear distortion and constraint operators. It can also be used to restore signals other than images.
