Image Melding: Combining Inconsistent Images Using Patch-Based Synthesis

A method for synthesizing a gradual transition between source images with inconsistent color, texture, and structures. The meethod combines the benefits of patch-based, gradient-based, and texture-interpolation approaches. "Image melding" is applied in a variety of applications: seamless stitching, cloning, morphing, completion, harmonization, warping, and texture interpolation.

Panorama Weaving: Fast and Flexible Seam Processing

This paper introduces the Panorama Weaving technique for production of optimal seams in a panorama. Weaving provides a procedure to create optimal boundaries for panoramas that is fast, low in memory, and easy to parallelize. It also provides the first interactive technique for exploration of the seam solution space.

Understanding and Improving the Realism of Image Composites

Compositing is one of the most commonly performed operations in computer graphics. This paper uses statistical and visual perception experiments to study the realism of image composites, and describes a data-driven algorithm that automatically adjusts composites to improve their realism.
