Fast Bilateral Filtering in Color Images

In this research, we propose a fast approximation to the bilateral filter for color images. The filter is based on two ideas. Firstly, the number of colors which occur in a single natural image is limited. We exploit this color sparseness to rewrite the initial non-linear bilateral filter as a number of linear filter operations. Secondly, we impose a statistical prior to the image values which are locally present within the filter window.

Multi-Illuminant estimation

We propose a CRF based method for multi-illuminant estimation. In addition we propose a data set with pixelwise ground-truth of both real scenes and laboratroy setting images.

Discriminative Color Descriptors

In this work we propose a number of discriminative color descriptors which are optimizing the discriminative power with respect to a classifciation problem. In addition, we propose a set of universal color descriptors which can be used without any prior training on any data set.

Object Recoloring based on Intrinsic Image Estimation

In this research we decompose the image into its intrinsic reflectance components with the aim to recolor scenes.
