  • Publication number: 20200280670
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to methods, non-transitory computer readable media, and systems that generate a virtual long exposure image from a sequence of short exposure images portraying a moving object. In various embodiments, the image transformation system aligns two digital images in the sequence of short exposure images. The image transformation system can determine a motion vector path for the moving object between the first digital image and the second digital image. The image transformation system can also blend pixels along the motion vector path to generate a blended image representative of the motion of the moving object between the first digital image and the second digital image. The image transformation system can generate additional blended images based on consecutive pairs of images in the sequence of digital images and generates a virtual long exposure image by combining the first blended image with the additional blended images.

  • Publication number: 20200004411
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, a system and method for providing a visual example-based user interface for adjusting images is provided. In example embodiments, a new image to be adjusted is received. A plurality of basis styles is generated by applying adjustment parameters to the new image. Each of the plurality of basis styles comprises an adjusted version of the new image with an adjustment of at least one image control. A user interface is provided that positions a version of the new image in a center portion and positions the plurality of basis styles on the user interface based on the adjustment parameters applied to the new image. A control mechanism is provided over the version of the new image whereby movement of the control mechanism to a new position on the user interface causes the version of the new image to adjust accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20190333194
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are directed to methods and systems for facilitating control of smoothness of transitions between images. In embodiments, a difference of color values of pixels between a foreground image and the background image are identified along a boundary associated with a location at which to paste the foreground image relative to the background image. Thereafter, recursive down sampling of a region of pixels within the boundary by a sampling factor is performed to produce a plurality of down sampled images having color difference indicators associated with each pixel of the down sampled images. Such color difference indicators indicate whether a difference of color value exists for the corresponding pixel. To effectuate a seamless transition, the color difference indicators are normalized in association with each recursively down sampled image.

  • Patent number: 10402948
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are directed to methods and systems for facilitating control of smoothness of transitions between images. In embodiments, a difference of color values of pixels between a foreground image and the background image are identified along a boundary associated with a location at which to paste the foreground image relative to the background image. Thereafter, recursive down sampling of a region of pixels within the boundary by a sampling factor is performed to produce a plurality of down sampled images having color difference indicators associated with each pixel of the down sampled images. Such color difference indicators indicate whether a difference of color value exists for the corresponding pixel. To effectuate a seamless transition, the color difference indicators are normalized in association with each recursively down sampled image.

  • Patent number: 10108884
    Abstract: In example embodiments, systems and methods for learning and using user preferences for image adjustments are presented. In example embodiments, a new image is received. A correction parameter based on previously stored user adjustments for similar images is determined. A user style that is an adjusted version of the new image is generated by applying the correction parameter. The user style is provided on a user interface. A user adjustment is received. Based on determining that a user sample image is within a predetermined threshold of closeness to the new image, data corresponding to the user sample image is replaced with new adjustment data for the new image in a database of user sample images used to generate the correction parameter. Based on determining that no user sample images are within the predetermined threshold of closeness, new adjustment data is appended to the database used to generate the correction parameter.

  • Patent number: 9576351
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for automatically transferring a style of at least two reference images to an input image. The resulting transformation of the input image matches the visual styles of the reference images without changing the identity of the subject of the input image. Each image is decomposed into levels of detail with corresponding energy levels and a residual. A style transfer operation is performed at each energy level and residual using the reference image that most closely matches the input image at each energy level. The transformations of each level of detail and the residual of the input image are aggregated to generate an output image having the styles of the reference images. In some cases, the transformations are performed on the foreground of the input image, and the background can be transformed by an amount that is proportional to the aggregated transformations of the foreground.
