We apply the Bayesian Spatial Autoregressive, which is developed by Geweke and LeSage, for reducing the blurring effect in the image. This blurring effect, particularly comes from the synthesizing semi regular texture via, e.g., two dimensional block bootstrap. We model the error, i.e., the difference between the true image and the synthesis one, as the Bayesian Spatial Autoregressive (SAR). Moreover, the weight matrix is defined in a specific manner, such that the problem in the computational for a very large matrix can be avoided. Finally, we use the error estimate, as the result of Bayesian SAR modelling, for reducing the blurring effect in the synthesis image.
