We present a method for learning a meta- �lter from an example pair comprising an original image A and its �ltered version A0 using an unknown image �lter. A meta-�lter is a parametric model, consisting of a spatially varying linear combination of simple basis �lters. We introduce a technique for learning the parameters of the meta-�lter f such that it approximates the e�ects of the unknown �lter, i.e., f(A) approximates A0. The meta-�lter can be transferred to novel input images, and its parametric representation enables intuitive tuning of its parameters to achieve controlled variations. We show that our technique successfully learns and models meta-�lters that approximate a large variety of common image �lters with high accuracy both visually and quantitatively.
