This paper presents an approach for image recovery from, broken image streams based on an image continuity model. The information to be recovered includes the header of an image (width, height, color space etc.) and the data stream which might have been partially damaged. We begin our discussion on common image formats and necessary information for the image recovery. We then define several measures on image contents to facilitate the image recovery. Using these measures, an effective recovery algorithm is proposed. Experimental results show that the algorithm can successfully recover images of different formats, even multiframe images from broken image streams in most cases.
