ABSTRACT A technique for extracting intrinsic images, including the reflectance and illumination images, from a single color image is presented. The technique first convolves the input image with a prescribed set of derivative filters. The pixels of filtered images are then classified into reflectance-related or illumination-related based on a set of chromatic characteristics of pixels calculated from the input image. Chromatic characteristics of pixels are defined by a photometric reflectance model based on the Kubelka-Munk color theory. From the classification results of the filtered images, the intrinsic images of the input image can be computed. Real images have been utilized in our experiments. The results have indicated that the proposed technique can effectively extract the intrinsic images from a single image.

    ABSTRACT: Multiple color stripes have been employed for structured light-based rapid range imaging to increase the number of uniquely identifiable stripes. The use of multiple color stripes poses two problems: (1) object surface color may disturb the stripe color and (2) the number of adjacent stripes required for identifying a stripe may not be maintained near surface discontinuities such as occluding boundaries. In this paper, we present methods to alleviate those problems. Log-gradient filters are employed to reduce the influence of object colors, and color stripes in two and three directions are used to increase the chance of identifying correct stripes near surface discontinuities. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our methods.

    ABSTRACT: Intrinsic images, including reflectance and illumination images, are desirable to many vision applications. An improved method for extracting intrinsic images from a single color image with integrated measures is presented. To start with, the input image convolves with a predefined set of derivative filters. The pixels of filtered images are then classified into reflectance-related or illumination-related using a criterion measure comprising three measures of filtered pixels calculated from the input image. The three measures are denoted as chromatic measure, blur measure, and intensity measure. Finally, the intrinsic images of the input image can be computed from the classification results of the filtered images. Both synthetic and real images have been utilized in our experiments. The results demonstrated that the proposed technique can effectively extract the intrinsic images from a single image.

    ABSTRACT: The intrinsic image composed of reflectance and shading images plays important roles in various computer vision applications. This paper focuses on solving the problem of intrinsic image decomposition. Based on the assumption that the image derivatives can be classified into either reflectance-related or shading-related, the reflectance and shading image can be restored from the classified derivatives. We improve the classification result using only color information by introducing the color invariant edge. Considering some color invariant properties in the image, the color invariant edge can provide more useful information in guiding the classification and producing more robust decomposition result as it is shown in the experiment.
