‎We present an application of the dual Gabor frames to image‎ ‎processing‎. ‎Our algorithm is based on finding some dual Gabor‎ ‎frame generators which reconstructs accurately the elements of the‎ ‎underlying Hilbert space‎. ‎The advantages of these duals‎ ‎constructed by a polynomial of Gabor frame generators are compared‎ ‎with their canonical dual‎.
