Scientists working on editing through text input




Researchers from the American Brown University have developed a method to edit through text pictures. For the method they were using machine learning and a proprietary algorithm.

The method users can for example change the weather and time of certain landscapes. For this, the researchers showed volunteers analyze more than eight thousand photos with different types of weather. Who came from more than one hundred webcams worldwide who had captured. Countryside in different weather conditions and seasons

Supplied inputs allowed the scientists to analyze their algorithm. This yielded a total of forty attributes, which the program of the researchers have to be able to edit photos. These attributes consist of simple commands such as cloudy, sunny, snowy, rainy or foggy. There are also subjective commands that the user can choose from, including gloomy, bright, sentimental, mysterious and rustic.

The program helps then to put their hand by just asking. Text commands users photos A command like ‘more rain’ let it look something rainier. For this, the program informs the image in different clusters of pixels. Then it turns that by looking at the properties of ‘rain’, which are in the database with the eight thousand-defined pictures defined. The text commands should help people who are not so familiar with advanced photo editing software like Photoshop.

Weather modification with text input

According to the researchers, their program offers more than just filters such as Instagram does. “Changing the weather in a photo involves changing over the blue sky in gray sky are about the whole picture subtle adjustments necessary to the color and the contract – adjustments. Normally possible only by a professional photo editor,” says the Brown University.

The program, which will be presented next week at the Siggraph conference, still has some limitations. For example, it can not reproduce attributes that require new structures in a picture. “We can not change winter into summer because it means that we have to show at a time that is snow in places like grass,” the researchers said.
