  • Computer Aided Color Appearance Design using Environment Map Based Lighting 

    Shimizu, Clement; Meyer, Gary W. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    A BRDF approximation is developed that is suitable for interactive color appearance design in direct lighting provided by environment maps. The BRDFs are approximated as a linear combination of cosine lobes with a fixed ...
  • Computational Color Harmony based on Coloroid System 

    Neumann, László; Nemcsics, Antal; Neumann, Attila (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    This paper presents experimentally based rules and methods for the creation of harmonic color sets. First, dichromatic rules are presented which concern the harmony relationships of two hues. For an arbitrarily given hue ...
  • Computational Automotive Color Appearance 

    Meyer, Gary W.; Shimizu, Clement (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    A computer graphic system has been developed that permits the interactive design of new automotive finishes. The software makes use of a reflection model for car paint that is based on industry standards for measuring the ...
  • Spectral Colour Order Systems and Appearance Metrics for Fluorescent Solid Colours 

    Wilkie, Alexander; Larboulette, Caroline; Purgathofer, Werner (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    One aspect of Computational Aesthetics is the finding of harmonic colours for the objects in a scene. Although the obtained degree of colour harmony is a subjective criterion, experience shows that on average human observers ...
  • Form Follows Function: Aesthetic Interactive Labels 

    Götzelmann, Timo; Ali, Kamran; Hartmann, Knut; Strothotte, Thomas (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Labels effectively convey co-referential relations between textual and visual elements and are a powerful tool to support learning tasks. Therefore, almost all illustrations in scientific or technical documents employ a ...
  • Smart Visibility in Visualization 

    Viola, Ivan; Gröller, Eduard (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    In this paper we discuss expressive visualization techniques that smartly uncover the most important information in order to maximize the visual information in the resulting images. This is achieved through dynamic changes ...
  • Illustrative Visualization for Medical Training 

    Sousa, Mario Costa; Ebert, David S.; Stredney, Don; Svakhine, Nikolai A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    A system is presented that produces images that simulate pictorial representations for both scientific and biomedical visualization. It combines traditional and novel volume illustration techniques. We present examples to ...
  • Viewpoint Quality: Measures and Applications 

    Sbert, Mateu; Plemenos, Dimitri; Feixas, Miquel; González, Francisco (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Several methods that use the notion of viewpoint quality have been recently introduced in different areas of computer graphics, such as scene understanding, exploration of virtual worlds, radiosity and global illumination, ...
  • An Information-Theoretic Framework for Image Complexity 

    Rigau, Jaume; Feixas, Miquel; Sbert, Mateu (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    In this paper, we introduce a new information-theoretic approach to study the complexity of an image. The new framework we present here is based on considering the information channel that goes from the histogram to the ...
  • Global Contrast Factor - a New Approach to Image Contrast 

    Matkovic, Kresimir; Neumann, László; Neumann, Attila; Psik, Thomas; Purgathofer, Werner (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Contrast in image processing is usually defined as a ratio between the darkest and the brightest spots of an image. In this paper we introduce a different contrast definition. The newly introduced Global Contrast Factor ...
  • Benford's Law for Natural and Synthetic Images 

    Acebo, Esteve Del; Sbert, Mateu (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Benford's Law (also known as the First Digit Law) is well known in statistics of natural phenomena. It states that, when dealing with quantities obtained from Nature, the frequency of appearance of each digit in the first ...
  • Straight away on Curved Spaces 

    Marty, Alain (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Two points of a Euclidean space can always be connected by the simplest of the curves, the straight line. This curve is unique (it s required), with a constant direction and a minimal length between the two points. The ...
  • Computer Generated Stereoscopic Artwork 

    Stavrakis, Stathis; Gelautz, Margrit (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    The focus of this work is to investigate and simulate artistic techniques in stereoscopy that go beyond stereo photography, such as stereoscopic painting. We briefly discuss the topic from a stereo artist s perspective and ...
  • Designing Metrics for the Purpose of Aesthetically Evaluating 

    Greenfield, Gary R. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    The algorithmic and evolutionary art movements within computer-generated art have helped spur interest in evaluating images on the basis of their aesthetic merit. When attempting to use non-interactive techniques to address ...
  • Color Search and Replace 

    Grundland, Mark; Dodgson, Neil A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    We present an interactive image enhancement technique to adjust the global color composition of an image by finding and replacing color gradients. We show how color gradient transformations can perform the basic operations ...
  • On Nonlinear Perspectives in Science, Art and Nature 

    Glaeser, Georg (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Classic perspectives, i.e., central projections onto a plane, are extremely common in our days. Photos, movies, computer generated animations almost exclusively use this technique. They are linear since straight lines in ...
  • Color Style Transfer Techniques using Hue, Lightness and Saturation Histogram Matching 

    Neumann, Attila; Neumann, László (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    We present new methods which transfer the color style of a source image into an arbitrary given target image having a different 3D color distribution. The color transfer has a high importance ensuring a wide area of ...
  • Sketch Based Construction and Rendering of Implicit Models 

    Wyvill, Brian; Foster, Kevin; Jepp, Pauline; Schmidt, Ryan; Sousa, Mario Costa; Jorge, Joaquim A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    We present an implicit modeling system as a tool for creating a wide range of aesthetic models. Because of their ability to form blends and produce both organic shapes as well as man-made objects, implicit surfaces are a ...
  • A Palette-Driven Approach to Image Color Transfer 

    Greenfield, Gary R.; House, Donald H. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Color analysis of images for the purpose of color balancing, color contrast, and color correction is critical in image processing applications. Color analysis of images for the purpose of palette extraction has received ...
  • Aesthetics in Covariant Image Reconstruction 

    Georgiev, Todor (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    This paper describes a method of seamless cloning based on aesthetic theory of lightness perception. Judgment of lightness and color harmony is treated as low level aesthetic judgment made by the human visual system. The ...
