  • Publication number: 20190304064
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer storage media for using body key points in received images and cropping rule representations to crop images are provided. Cropping configurations are received that specify characteristics of cropped images. Also obtained are images to crop. For a given image, a plurality of body key points is determined. A list of tuples is determined from the body key points and the cropping configurations. Each tuple includes a reference point, a reference length and an offset scale. A possible anchor level is calculated for each tuple. Each tuple sharing a common reference body key point is aggregated and a border representation is determined by calculating the minimum, maximum or average of all such possible anchor levels. The image is then cropped at the border representation. This process can be repeated for multiple border representations within a single image and/or for multiple images.

  • Publication number: 20190294916
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve determining a diverse and representative subset of swatches of an input image. For example, a graphic manipulation application determine a salient object in an image. The graphic manipulation application extracts multiple swatches from the image. In some cases, the swatches include pixels included in the salient object. The graphic manipulation application computes selection scores for the multiple swatches by combining, for each swatch, a likelihood score indicating a representativeness of a pattern depicted by a respective swatch, and a dominance score indicating a dominance of the pattern depicted by the respective swatch. The graphic manipulation application generates, based on the selection scores of the multiple swatches, a subset of the multiple swatches extracted from the image.

  • Publication number: 20190279346
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve blending images using neural networks to automatically generate alignment or photometric adjustments that control image blending operations. For instance, a foreground image and a background image data are provided to an adjustment-prediction network that has been trained, using a reward network, to compute alignment or photometric adjustments that optimize blending reward scores. An adjustment action (e.g., an alignment or photometric adjustment) is computed by applying the adjustment-prediction network to the foreground image and the background image data. A target background region is extracted from the background image data by applying the adjustment action to the background image data. The target background region is blended with the foreground image, and the resultant blended image is outputted.

  • Publication number: 20190244327
    Abstract: Image cropping suggestion using multiple saliency maps is described. In one or more implementations, component scores, indicative of visual characteristics established for visually-pleasing croppings, are computed for candidate image croppings using multiple different saliency maps. The visual characteristics on which a candidate image cropping is scored may be indicative of its composition quality, an extent to which it preserves content appearing in the scene, and a simplicity of its boundary. Based on the component scores, the croppings may be ranked with regard to each of the visual characteristics. The rankings may be used to cluster the candidate croppings into groups of similar croppings, such that croppings in a group are different by less than a threshold amount and croppings in different groups are different by at least the threshold amount. Based on the clustering, croppings may then be chosen, e.g., to present them to a user for selection.
