Interactive Image Filtering with Multiple Levels-of-Control on Mobile Devices

Semmo, Amir; Dürschmid, Tobias; Trapp, Matthias; Klingbeil, Mandy; Döllner, Jürgen; Pasewaldt, Sebastian in Proceedings ACM SIGGRAPH Asia Symposium on Mobile Graphics and Interactive Applications 2016 .

With the continuous development of mobile graphics hardware, interactive high-quality image stylization based on nonlinear filtering is becoming feasible and increasingly used in casual creativity apps. However, these apps often only serve high-level controls to parameterize image filters and generally lack support for low-level (artistic) control, thus automating art creation rather than assisting it. This work presents a GPU-based framework that enables to parameterize image filters at three levels of control: (1) presets followed by (2) global parameter adjustments can be interactively refined by (3) complementary on-screen painting that operates within the filters' parameter spaces for local adjustments. The framework provides a modular XML-based effect scheme to effectively build complex image processing chains-using these interactive filters as building blocks-that can be efficiently processed on mobile devices. Thereby, global and local parameterizations are directed with higher-level algorithmic support to ease the interactive editing process, which is demonstrated by state-of-the-art stylization effects, such as oil paint filtering and watercolor rendering.
