Multi-Scale Image Harmonization
Compositing images that differ significantly in appearance often produces unrealistic results. This framework matches the visual appearance of images, including contrast, texture, noise, and blur, by manipulating their pyramid representations and blends them with alpha-based and seamless boundary constraints to produce highly realistic composites with minimal user interaction.
Personal Photo Enhancement Using Example Images
This framework for improving photos by using a person’s favorite photographs as examples aligns faces between “good” and “bad” photos and uses properties of the good examples to improve bad images. These “personal” photos provide strong guidance for a number of operations.
Parametric Reshaping of Human Bodies in Images
An easy-to-use image retouching system that allows users to easily reshape a human body in a single image by simply manipulating a small set of sliders corresponding to semantic attributes such as height, weight, and waist girth.
Image Warps for Artistic Perspective Manipulation
Painters commonly sketch vanishing points and lines to guide the construction of perspective images. This paper presents a tool for manipulating perspective in photographs via image-space controls similar to those used by artists. The system optimizes a warp that satisfies the user-specified constraints while minimizing distortion of the image.
