Colorization is the process of adding colors to monochrome images. State-of-the-art colorization methods can be generally categorized into example-based colorization and scribble-based algorithms. In this paper, we present a new scribble-based colorization algorithm based on Bayesian inference and nonlocal likelihood computation. We convert the process of image colorization to a probability optimization problem in this Bayesian framework, where we use nonlocal-mean likelihood computation and Markov random field prior's. The expectation maximization method is used to solve an optimization object function. Finally, experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm
