This paper provides an overview of the processes involved in detecting and removing cracks from digitized works of art. Speciﬁc attention is given to the crack detection phase as completed through the use of morphological operations. Mathematical morphology is an area of set theory applicable to image processing, and therefore lends itself eﬀectively to the digital art restoration process.
