A Closed-Form Solution to Natural Image Matting
TLDR
A closed-form solution to natural image matting that allows us to find the globally optimal alpha matte by solving a sparse linear system of equations and predicts the properties of the solution by analyzing the eigenvectors of a sparse matrix, closely related to matrices used in spectral image segmentation algorithms. Expand
Colorization using optimization
TLDR
This paper presents a simple colorization method that requires neither precise image segmentation, nor accurate region tracking, and demonstrates that high quality colorizations of stills and movie clips may be obtained from a relatively modest amount of user input. Expand
Edge-preserving decompositions for multi-scale tone and detail manipulation
TLDR
This paper advocates the use of an alternative edge-preserving smoothing operator, based on the weighted least squares optimization framework, which is particularly well suited for progressive coarsening of images and for multi-scale detail extraction. Expand
Gradient domain high dynamic range compression
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the method is capable of drastic dynamic range compression, while preserving fine details and avoiding common artifacts, such as halos, gradient reversals, or loss of local contrast. Expand

Joint bilateral upsampling
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in cases, such as those above, the available high resolution input image may be leveraged as a prior in the context of a joint bilateral upsampling procedure to produce a better high resolution solution. Expand
Crowds by Example
TLDR
By learning from real‐world examples, autonomous agents display complex natural behaviors that are often missing in crowd simulations. Expand

Non-rigid dense correspondence with applications for image enhancement
TLDR
The usefulness of the method is demonstrated using three applications for automatic example-based photograph enhancement: adjusting the tonal characteristics of a source image to match a reference, transferring a known mask to a new image, and kernel estimation for image deblurring. Expand
