Automatisierte Online-Fotomontagen aus Scribbles

Gute Nachrichten für alle Photoshop-Wizards: Kiss your job goodbye. PhotoSketch bastelt aus einem einfachen Skribble und Bildern aus dem Internet realistische Fotomontagen. Ich habe mir die Ergebnisse noch nicht im Detail angesehen und gehe davon aus, dass die mit einer „richtigen“ Montage via Photoshop nicht mithalten kann. Noch.


We present a system that composes a realistic picture from a simple freehand sketch annotated with text labels. The composed picture is generated by seamlessly stitching several photographs in agreement with the sketch and text labels; these are found by searching the Internet. Although online image search generates many inappropriate results, our system is able to automatically select suitable photographs to generate a high quality composition, using a filtering scheme to exclude undesirable images.

We also provide a novel image blending algorithm to allow seamless image composition. Each blending result is given a numeric score, allowing us to find an optimal combination of discovered images. Experimental results show the method is very successful; we also evaluate our system using the results from two user studies.
