The development of an automatic telemedicine system for computer-aided screening and grading of diabetic retinopathy depends on reliable detection of retinal lesions in fundus images. In this paper, a novel method for automatic detection of both microaneurysms and hemorrhages in color fundus images is described and validated. The main contribution is a new(More)
Segmenting the retinal vessels from fundus images is a prerequisite for many CAD systems for the automatic detection of diabetic retinopathy lesions. So far, research efforts have concentrated mainly on the accurate localization of the large to medium diameter vessels. However, failure to detect the smallest vessels at the segmentation step can lead to(More)
We present a technique for the analysis and re-synthesis of 2D arrangements of stroke-based vector elements. The capture of an artist's style by the sole posterior analysis of his/her achieved drawing poses a formidable challenge. Such by-example techniques could become one of the most intuitive tools for users to alleviate creation process efforts. Here,(More)

Many rendering methods use discrete textures (planar arrangements of vector elements) instead of classic bitmaps. Discrete textures are resolution-insensitive and easily allow to modify the elements' geometry or spatial distribution. However, manually drawing such textures is a time-consuming task. Automating this production is a long-time studied subject.(More)
We present in this paper an approach to the analysis of the pictorial content of artistic line-drawings. The pictorial content is the combination of the stylistic content and of the visual features of the represented subject. This paper focuses on the pictorial content hold by line strokes in line-drawings. To this aim, we propose a parameter-free method to(More)
This paper targets two related color manipulation problems: Color transfer for modifying an image’s colors and colorization for adding colors to a grayscale image. Automatic methods for these two applications propose to modify the input image using a reference that contains the desired colors. Previous approaches usually do not target both applications and(More)
Figure 1: Our Model-Based Discrete Texture Synthesis. Given a 2D or 3D exemplar texture composed of discrete vector elements, our model captures the pairwise element interactions that govern the texture's spatial organization, and accounts for their complex shapes. New output textures can then be generated to fill specified domain. Abstract We present a(More)
In this article, a general framework for the retrieval of artistic line-drawings is introduced. It relies on the pictorial content, defined as a combination of the stylistic content and the visual features of the represented subject. First, we propose an automatic method for the extraction of stroke contours in line drawings, relying on a filtering of the(More)
We introduce a spatial color image retrieval method which does not include any segmentation step. This method relies on small image thumbnails and the Earth Mover's Distance (EMD). We then derive an unsupervised matching criterion using an a contrario approach. Experiments are performed on a database of illuminated manuscripts.
