A COMBINED TECHNIQUE FOR DETECTING OBJECTS IN MULTIMODAL IMAGES OF PAINTINGS

Dmitry Murashov

Abstract

A combined technique for detecting objects in multimodal images based on specific object detectors and image difference measure is presented. The information-theoretical measures of image difference are proposed. The conditions of applicability of these measures for detecting artefacts in multimodal images are formulated. The technique based on the proposed measures is successfully used for detecting repainting and retouching areas in the images of fine-art paintings. It requires segmentation of only one of the analyzed images.
