Image inpainting is a technique used to automatically recover the damaged or missing regions in digital images and is used to remove the unwanted objects from images. This paper presents a novel approach for recovering the damaged regions of digital images using splines. The proposed technique is divided into two steps. In the first step structure of the object in the damaged region is recovered using splines. The animator marks a reasonable number of points on the structure of the object around the damaged region. Using these points a spline is constructed and the isophote lines arriving at the contours of the damaged region are interpolated into the damaged regions using that spline. After recovering the structure of the object in the damaged or missing region, in the second step, a fill in process is done to fill in the color information in the damaged region. Any interpolation technique can be used in the second step to flow the color information into the damaged region. The proposed algorithm is tested over a large variety of images and has sown excellent results to restore the small damaged regions and satisfactory results for large damaged regions
