A method for decomposing shading and reflectance components from a color texture image is presented. The shading intensity of each pixel is either computed or synthesized according to its characteristics, and the reflectance is consequently decomposed, with additional denoising when necessary. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated using real color texture images.
