We present a model for intrinsic decomposition of RGB-D images. Our approach analyzes a single RGB-D image and estimates albedo and shading fields that explain the input. To disambiguate the problem, our model estimates a number of components that jointly account for the reconstructed shading. By decomposing the shading field, we can build in assumptions about image formation that help distinguish reflectance variation from shading. These assumptions are expressed as simple nonlocal…

Intrinsic decomposition from a single RGB-D image with sparse and non-local priors
TLDR
A new intrinsic image decomposition method that decomposes a single RGB-D image into reflectance and shading components is proposed that yields better results and enjoys lower complexity compared with two state-of-the-art methods.
Intrinsic Decompositions for Image Editing
TLDR
A new synthetic ground‐truth dataset is introduced that is used to evaluate the validity of these priors and the performance of the methods, and the performances of the different methods in the context of image‐editing applications are evaluated.
Scene Intrinsics and Depth from a Single Image
TLDR
This work demonstrates the first pipeline for full intrinsic decomposition of scenes from a single color image input alone, and regresses depth by a fully convolutional network then jointly optimizes the intrinsic factorization to recover the input image.

TLDR
A simple optimization based approach with smoothness constraints on depth, reflectance and illumination from a single RGB-D image is proposed to generate high quality depth without additional processes such as pre-training of stochastic models or image segmentation.
Intrinsic Image Decomposition Using Structure-Texture Separation and Surface Normals

A Variational Model for Intrinsic Light Field Decomposition
TLDR
A novel variational model for intrinsic light field decomposition is presented, which is performed on four-dimensional ray space instead of a traditional 2D image, and the advantages of this approach with respect to intrinsic image decomposition and specular removal are demonstrated.
