In this study, a method is proposed for pasting a user selected and copied part of a region from the source image to the target image. Since the selected areas in the source and target images are not homogenous which means they contain texture information, most of the previous methods in the literature depending on the Poisson equation cause occurrence of adverse effects such as blur or color leakage in the processed region. The proposed method does not cause those artifacts in most cases but it makes an improvement and minimizes the artifacts. The visual results also prove that the method is promising.
