In this paper, we propose a novel approach for foreground layer extraction using flash/no-flash image pairs, which we call flash cut. Flash cut is based on the simple observation that only the foreground is significantly brightened by the flash and the background appearance change is very small, if the background is distant. Changes due to flash, motion, and color information are fused in an MRF framework to produce high quality segmentation results. Flash cut handles some amount of camera… CONTINUE READING
