    • -x - use ensemble
    • -g 0 - select gpu id.

Introduction

Recent state-of-the-art super-resolution methods have achieved impressive performance on ideal datasets regardless of blur and noise. However, these methods always fail in real-world image super-resolution, since most of them adopt simple bicubic downsampling from high-quality images to construct Low-Resolution (LR) and High-Resolution (HR) pairs for training which may lose track of frequency-related details. To address this issue, we focus on designing a novel degradation framework for real-world images by estimating various blur kernels as well as real noise distributions. Based on our novel degradation framework, we can acquire LR images sharing a common domain with real-world images. Then, we propose a real-world super-resolution model aiming at better perception. Extensive experiments on synthetic noise data and real-world images demonstrate that our method outperforms the state-of-the-art methods, resulting in lower noise and better visual quality. In addition, our method is the winner of NTIRE 2020 Challenge on both tracks of Real-World Super-Resolution, which significantly outperforms other competitors by large margins.

Dependencies and Installation

This code is based on BasicSR.

  • Python 3 (Recommend to use Anaconda)
  • PyTorch >= 1.0
  • NVIDIA GPU + CUDA
  • Python packages: pip install numpy opencv-python lmdb pyyaml
  • TensorBoard:
    • PyTorch >= 1.1: pip install tb-nightly future
    • PyTorch == 1.0: pip install tensorboardX

Pre-trained models

  • Models for challenge results
    • DF2K for corrupted images with processing noise.
    • DPED for real images taken by cell phone camera.
  • Extended models

Testing

Download dataset from NTIRE 2020 RWSR and unzip it to your path.

For convenient, we provide Corrupted-te-x and DPEDiphone-crop-te-x.

cd ./codes

DF2K: Image processing artifacts

  1. Modify the configuration file options/df2k/test_df2k.yml
    • line 1 : 'name' -- dir name for saving the testing results
    • line 13 : 'dataroot_LR' -- test images dir
    • line 26 : 'pretrain_model_G' -- pre-trained model for testing
  2. Run command : CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=X python3 test.py -opt options/df2k/test_df2k.yml
  3. The output images is saved in '../results/'

DPED: Smartphone images

  1. Modify the configuration file options/dped/test_dped.yml
    • line 1 : 'name' -- dir name for saving the testing results
    • line 13 : 'dataroot_LR' -- test images dir
    • line 26 : 'pretrain_model_G' -- pre-trained model for testing
  2. Run command : CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=X python3 test.py -opt options/dped/test_dped.yml
  3. The output images is saved in '../results/'

Training

Track 1

  1. prepare training data

    • specify dataset paths in './preprocess/path.yml' and create bicubic dataset : python3 ./preprocess/create_bicubic_dataset.py --dataset df2k --artifacts tdsr

    • run the below command to collect high frequency noise from Source : python3 ./preprocess/collect_noise.py --dataset df2k --artifacts tdsr

  2. train SR model

    • Modify the configuration file options/df2k/train_bicubic_noise.yml
    • Run command : CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=4,5,6,7 python3 train.py -opt options/df2k/train_bicubic_noise.yml
    • checkpoint dir is in '../experiments'

Track 2

  1. prepare training data

    • Use KernelGAN to generate kernels from source images. Clone the repo here. Replace SOURCE_PATH with specific path and run :

      cd KernelGAN
      CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=4,5,6,7 python3 train.py --X4 --input-dir SOURCE_PATH
      
    • specify dataset paths in './preprocess/path.yml' and generated KERNEL_PATH to kernel create kernel dataset: python3 ./preprocess/create_kernel_dataset.py --dataset dped --artifacts clean --kernel_path KERNEL_PATH

    • run the below command to collect high frequency noise from Source: python3 ./preprocess/collect_noise.py --dataset dped --artifacts clean

  2. train SR model

    • Modify the configuration file options/dped/train_kernel_noise.yml
    • run command : CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=4,5,6,7 python3 train.py -opt options/dped/train_kernel_noise.yml
    • checkpoint dir is in '../experiments'
