REVERSE PAINTERLY RENDERING

Ying Wang, Masahiro Takatsuka

Abstract

Traditional painterly rendering algorithms transform photographic images to their artistic representations such as paintings or drawings. However, the reverse process of painterly rendering has never been discussed, which could be useful for studies in heritage and forensic science. This paper presents a novel reverse painterly rendering algorithm which restores “oil painting-like” images to photo-like images. Results show that our algorithm can improve the photorealistic appearance of “oil painting-like” images.
