Objectives: This study examines the potential of Explicit Decoupled Group (EDG) iterative method to solve Poisson image blending problem in terms of blending iterations, time and the quality of newly blended images. Methods: The finite difference method is used to discretize the Poisson equation. Then the Poisson system is solved by EDG method via fivepoint rotated Laplacian operator. Three experiments are conducted to collect the findings obtained from classical GaussSeidel (GS), Explicit Group (EG) and EDG iterative methods. Findings: Numerical results showed that EDG is the most efficient iterative method in solving the proposed problem with the least composing time and number of iterations. This is due to the reason that the solution domain is halved, whereas the remaining can be computed directly. Meanwhile, the newly generated images by all the selected iterative methods are blended gracefully without obvious seam. Improvement: The EDG iterative method is better than other existing classical iterative methods in solving the Poison image blending problem.
