In this paper we use image inpainting technique in colour images. Inpainting is a technique in which, a missing area or pixels are replaced by adequate neighbouring pixels so that the resultant image obtained will look as no defect is there. In this paper we have removed an object from the colour image and the vacant pixels are filled with the help of the surrounding neighbouring pixels. Two techniques are used here for removing and inpainting an object from the still colour image, Modified Lattice Boltzmann Method and Exemplar Method. Existing Exemplar Method of inpainting is used to compare the results of Modified Lattice Boltzmann Method. The Lattice Boltzmann Equation from fluid dynamics it modified to use for inpainting. Peak Signal to Noise Ratio, Self-SIMilarity Index and execution time of the image is calculated for both inpainting techniques. From the objective analysis, it is found that the proposed Modified Lattice Boltzmann method of inpainting gives a better inpainted result.
