You walk through a museum taking photographs of some paintings with your commodity camera. You load all these images into the computer. The computer builds a high-quality image of each one of the paintings. This article describes what the computer does. More precisely, we explain a method to produce a single, high-resolution, clean and well-lit image, out of many low-resolution noisy images taken in bad lighting conditions.
