1. A method of enhancing an image comprising:
increasing sampling rate of a first image to a target sampling rate to form an interpolated image;
processing a second image through a high pass filter to form a high pass features image, wherein the second image is at the target sampling rate;
extracting detail from the high pass features image;
merging the detail from the high pass features image with the interpolated image to form a prediction image at the target sampling rate;
outputting the prediction image;
processing at least one additional image through a high pass filter to form at least one respective additional high pass features image; and
extracting detail from the at least one additional high pass features image, wherein merging the detail from the high pass features image with the interpolated image includes merging detail from the at least one additional high pass features image to form the prediction image.
