Visual attribute transfer through deep image analogy Visual attribute transfer through deep image analogy
Paper summary _Objective:_ Transfer visual attribute (color, tone, texture, and style, etc) between two semantically-meaningful images such as a picture and a sketch. ## Inner workings: ### Image analogy An image analogy A:A′::B:B′ is a relation where: * B′ relates to B in the same way as A′ relates to A * A and A′ are in pixel-wise correspondences * B and B′ are in pixel-wise correspondences In this paper only a source image A and an example image B′ are given, and both A′ and B represent latent images to be estimated.

The mapping is divided in two sub-mappings that are easier to compute, first a visual attribute transformation and then a space transformation.

Compute features at each layer for the input image using a pre-trained CNN and initialize feature maps of latent images with coarsest layer. 2. For said layer compute a forward and reverse nearest-neighbor field (NNF, basically an offset field). 3. Use this NNF with the feature of the input current layer to compute the features of the latent images. 4. Upsample the NNF and use it as the initialization for the NNF of the next layer.
