File Information

The fast NLM method is based on integral images and is described in Darbon's paper. Generally speaking, this fast implementation is more than 10 times faster than the classic NLM method.

I could be wrong, but I believe your code only compares the lower right part of each patch, including the central pixel, whereas my correction compares the entire patch (squared difference norm)

I think that fragment of code should be replaced by:

Sd = integralImgSqDiff(PaddedV,dx,dy);

% Obtaine the Square difference for every pair of pixels
SqDist = Sd(PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf+1:Height+WindowSizeHalf+PatchSizeHalf,PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf+1:Width+WindowSizeHalf+PatchSizeHalf)... % lower right corner
+ Sd(-PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf:Height+WindowSizeHalf-PatchSizeHalf-1,-PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf:Width+WindowSizeHalf-PatchSizeHalf-1)... % index below upper left corner
- Sd(-PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf:Height+WindowSizeHalf-PatchSizeHalf-1,PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf+1:Width+WindowSizeHalf+PatchSizeHalf)... % upper right corner
- Sd(PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf+1:Height+WindowSizeHalf+PatchSizeHalf,-PatchSizeHalf+WindowSizeHalf:Width+WindowSizeHalf-PatchSizeHalf-1);

are you sure this method is correct?
I believe there is a structural bug in the part
% Obtaine the Square difference for every pair of pixels
SqDist = Sd(PatchSizeHalf+1:end-PatchSizeHalf,PatchSizeHalf+1:end-PatchSizeHalf)+Sd(1:end-2*PatchSizeHalf,1:end-2*PatchSizeHalf)-Sd(1:end-2*PatchSizeHalf,PatchSizeHalf+1:end-PatchSizeHalf)-Sd(PatchSizeHalf+1:end-PatchSizeHalf,1:end-2*PatchSizeHalf);
