In this paper, we aim at the restoration of local motion-blur. On the base of construction of basic model of local motion-blur, the formation mechanism of local motion-blur is analyzed, and a new restoration algorithm aimed at local motion-blur in a complex background is proposed. In the algorithm, the problem of restoration of blurred image with complex background is simplified. First, the blurred part is extracted from the complex background, and then it is pasted onto a bottom with monochromatic background. After restoration in the monochromatic background, the restored part is pasted back to the original complex background. All the operations can be completed in spatial domain. Because the restoration of blur image with monochromatic background is easier, so the algorithm proposed in this paper is simple, fast and effectual. It is an effective method of blur image restoration.
