Abstract. We address the problem of constructing single low noise image from a sequence of multiple noisy images. We use the approach based on finding and averaging similar blocks in the image and extend it to multiple images. Unlike traditional multi-frame super-resolution algorithms, the block-matching approach does not require computationally expensive motion estimation for multi-frame image denoising. In this work, we use an algorithm based on weighted nuclear minimization for image denoising. The evaluation of the algorithm shows noticeable improvement of image quality when using multiple input images instead of single one. The improvement is the most noticeable in the areas with complex non-repeated structure.
