Search-and-Replace Editing for Personal Photo Collections.
Proc. 2nd IEEE International Conference on Computational Photography, ICCP 2010.
We propose a new system for editing personal photo collections,
inspired by search-and-replace editing for text. In
our system, local edits specified by the user in a single photo
(e.g., using the "clone brush" tool) can be propagated automatically
to other photos in the same collection, by matching
the edited region across photos. To achieve this, we
build on tools from computer vision for image matching.
Our experimental results on real photo collections demonstrate
the feasibility and potential benefits of our approach.
