Abstract

In this paper, we describe a new interactive image completion system that allows users to easily specify various forms of mid-level structures in the image. Our system supports the specification of four basic symmetric types: reflection, translation, rotation, and glide. The user inputs are automatically converted into guidance maps that encode possible candidate shifts and, indirectly, local transformations of rotation and scale. These guidance maps are used in conjunction with a color matching cost for image completion. We show that our system is capable of handling a variety of challenging examples.
