2D Shading for Cel Animation

In this paper we present a semi-automatic method for creating shades and self-shadows in cel animation. Besides producing attractive images, shades and shadows provide important visual cues about depth, shapes, ...

A Geometry-Sensitive Approach for Photographic Style Classification

Abstract Photographs are characterized by different compositional attributes like the Rule of Thirds, depth of field, vanishing-lines etc. The presence or absence of one or more of these attributes contributes ...

AlphaGAN: Generative adversarial networks for natural image matting

Abstract We present the first generative adversarial network (GAN) for natural image matting. Our novel generator network is trained to predict visually appealing alphas with the addition of the adversarial ...

User Interaction for Image Recolouring using L2

Recently, an example based colour transfer approach proposed modelling the colour distributions of a palette and target image using Gaussian Mixture Models, and registers them by minimising the robust L2 ...
