Edge-preserving filter

Noise reduction of a grayscale image preserving the sharp edges of objects. Is based initially on the work of Kuwahara, then Schulze and Pearce. In contrast to the latter, which retain for a given point, the local mean of the lowest variance, a linear combination of the local means in the vicinity is held according to...
