Using concepts from projection onto convex sets (POCS), we develop algorithms for reconstructing bilevel images from a low quality JPEG. The constraint that the image is bilevel is not convex, so simple iteration does not suffice, but we develop techniques for enforcing the constraints gradually (soft-thresholding) and for using randomness to improve convergence (random thresholding). Our final algorithm succeeded in finding a bilevel image satisfying our constraints in every tested case.
