The 512×512 PPG-LIRMM-COLOR database :

In order to build the PPG-LIRMM-COLOR database image [1, 2, 3], the full-resolution raw images were collected from two standard subsets:
- 3500 full-resolution Nikon digital camera raw color images from the Dresden Image Database [Dresden 2010],
- and 1000 Canon digital camera raw color images from the BOSS base [BOSS 2011].

Afterwards, the RGB color images are obtained by using the Patterned Pixel Grouping (PPG) demosaicking algorithm used in dcraw. Finally, from each color RGB image, we randomly extracted five cropped images measuring 512×512. In this last process, the cropped images are extracted carefully, so that the CFA map layout always stays the same (red channel pixel is always at the top-left corner such that the Bayer Pattern is always of type RGBG), as illustrated in the Figure. Finally, we keep the 512x512 images having the higher variations in order to obtain 10, 000 RGB images (ppm format).

If researchers use this free-access database, they are required to cite this paper [1].
