  title={Selective Reverse Tone Mapping Belen Masia},
  author={Roland W. Fleming and Olga Sorkine and Diego Gutierrez},
High dynamic range (HDR) displays are becoming more common, which has given rise to a number of reverse tone mapping techniques. The goal of these techniques is to expand the dynamic range of all the existing low dynamic range content to t that of these displays. Most of the reverse tone mapping operators, however, fail to o er a good solution in cases where the input images contain large saturated areas. In this paper we present an interactive higher-level approach to reverse tone mapping… Expand

Figures from this paper


Inverse tone mapping
An approximate solution to this problem is proposed that uses median-cut to find the areas considered of high luminance and subsequently applies a density estimation to generate an Expand-map in order to extend the range in the high Luminance areas using an inverse Photographic Tone Reproduction operator. Expand
A framework for inverse tone mapping
A new framework that approximates a solution to the problem of inverse tone mapping, which expands a low dynamic range image (LDRI) into an HDRI and uses importance sampling of light sources to find the areas considered to be of high luminance and subsequently applies density estimation to generate an expand map. Expand
Tone mapping for high dynamic range displays
This article proposes a tone scale function to re-render images first tone-mapped to standard displays, that focuses on the representation of specular highlights, and describes a method to perform this segmentation automatically, which detects specular Highlights by using two low-pass filters of different sizes combined with morphological operators. Expand
Evaluation of reverse tone mapping through varying exposure conditions
It is shown that current rTMO approaches fall short when the input image is not exposed properly, and proposed a method to automatically set a suitable gamma value for each image, based on the image key and empirical data, which enhances visible details without causing artifacts in incorrectly-exposed regions. Expand
Two-scale tone management for photographic look
This work introduces a Poisson correction that prevents potential gradient reversal and preserves detail, and introduces a technique that controls the spatial variation of detail in the two-scale non-linear decomposition of an image. Expand
The Reproduction of Specular Highlights on High Dynamic Range Displays
A tone scale function is proposed that takes advantage of the increase in dynamic range of HDR monitors to recreate the brightness of specular highlights, which were clipped or compressed by the capturing and rendering process to SDR. Expand
Ldr2Hdr: on-the-fly reverse tone mapping of legacy video and photographs
A method for boosting the dynamic range of legacy video and photographs for viewing on high dynamic range displays with emphasis on real-time processing of video streams, such as web streams or the signal from a DVD player is described. Expand
Expanding low dynamic range videos for high dynamic range applications
An algorithm and related methods are introduced that expand the contrast range of Low Dynamic Range videos in order to regenerate missing High Dynamic Range (HDR) data by inverting established tone mapping operator. Expand
Photographic tone reproduction for digital images
The work presented in this paper leverages the time-tested techniques of photographic practice to develop a new tone reproduction operator and uses and extends the techniques developed by Ansel Adams to deal with digital images. Expand
Interactive local adjustment of tonal values
The user's sparse set of constraints are interpolated to the entire image using an edge-preserving energy minimization method designed to prevent the propagation of tonal adjustments to regions of significantly different luminance. Expand
