Analyzing the layout of composite textures

Texture 2002 Workshop in conjunction with ECCV 2002


The synthesis of many textures can be simplified if they are first decomposed into simpler subtextures. Such bootstrap procedure allows to first consider a label texture , that captures the layout of the subtextures, after which the subtextures can be filled in. A companion paper focuses on this latter aspect. This paper describes an approach to arrive at the label texture. Pairwise pixel similarities are computed by matching simple color and texture features histograms in pixel neighbourhoods, using efficient mean-shift search. A graph-based, unsupervised algorithm segments the image into subtextures, based on the similarities.
