Object-aware Gradient-Domain Image Compositing

Object-aware Gradient-Domain Image Compositing

We describe an approach to suppress bleeding artifacts without altering the boundary location in gradient-domain compositing, a technique to create seamless composites. While gradient-domain compositing has become a standard tool for many complex image editing tasks such as seamless cloning, panorama stitching or scene completion, its quality suffers from mismatches in the composited image regions. We propose an approach that is robust to non-optimal region selection by the user without altering his selection which may be neither intended nor possible for certain compositing tasks. In addition, we present an easy-to-use extension to composite interleaving objects. The usability of our approach is demonstrated by several image compositing tasks and comparisons to current state-of-the-art algorithms in gradient-domain image compositing are presented.
