Many medical (computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging) and astronomy imaging problems (Square Kilometre Array), spectroscopy and Fourier optics attempt at reconstructing high quality images in the pixel domain from a limited number of samples in the frequency domain. In this paper, we extend the problem formulation of learnable compressive subsampling [1] that focuses on the learning of the best sampling operator in the Fourier domain adapted to spectral properties of training set of images. We formulate the problem as a reconstruction from a finite number of sparse samples with a prior learned from the external dataset or learned on-fly for the image to be reconstructed. The proposed methods are tested on diverse datasets covering facial images, medical and multi-band astronomical applications using the mean square error and SSIM as a perceptual measure of reconstruction. The obtained results demonstrate some interesting properties of proposed methods that might be of interest for future research and extensions.
