Visual Scene and Material Appearance Control Technology for Intuitive and Creative Image Editing

At Fuji Xerox, we have been researching visual scene and material appearance control technology, which aims to allow customers involved with imaging-related workflows or business processes to perform easy, intuitive image editing. This paper presents examples illustrating our convenient, user-friendly method that enables a specified area of an image to be edited using easy operations. This paper also explains our research and development framework consisting of four fundamental technologies (segmentation technology, synthesis technology, reproduction technology, and analysis technology) underpinning this method, introducing the roles and characteristics of each. Finally, this paper describes the challenges to be addressed and future prospects for Fuji Xerox's color image processing technology.
