Abstract

We propose a new texture editing operation called texture splicing. For this operation, we regard a texture as having repetitive elements (textons) seamlessly distributed in a particular pattern. Taking two textures as input, texture splicing generates a new texture by selecting the texton appearance from one texture and distribution from the other. Texture splicing involves self-similarity search to extract the distribution, distribution warping, contextdependent warping, and finally, texture refinement to preserve overall appearance. We show a variety of results to illustrate this operation.
