With the effective image processing tools, the digital image processing technique can be applied to the virtual restoration of artistic paintings. For the restoration of artistic work, digital image processing technique serves many purposes. This paper presents approach for virtual digital restoration of artistic paintings which are suffering from the breaks or cracks. An approach includes detection or identification and removal of cracks using digital image processing technique. The cracks are identified by thresholding the output of the top-hat transform. Afterward, the breaks which are wrongly identified as cracks are separated using a semi-automatic procedure based on region growing. Finally, in order to restore the image, order statistics filters are used.
