Texture Transform Attention for Realistic Image Inpainting

8 Dec 2020  ·  Yejin Kim, Manri Cheon, Junwoo Lee ·

Over the last few years, the performance of inpainting to fill missing regions has shown significant improvements by using deep neural networks. Most of inpainting work create a visually plausible structure and texture, however, due to them often generating a blurry result, final outcomes appear unrealistic and make feel heterogeneity. In order to solve this problem, the existing methods have used a patch based solution with deep neural network, however, these methods also cannot transfer the texture properly. Motivated by these observation, we propose a patch based method. Texture Transform Attention network(TTA-Net) that better produces the missing region inpainting with fine details. The task is a single refinement network and takes the form of U-Net architecture that transfers fine texture features of encoder to coarse semantic features of decoder through skip-connection. Texture Transform Attention is used to create a new reassembled texture map using fine textures and coarse semantics that can efficiently transfer texture information as a result. To stabilize training process, we use a VGG feature layer of ground truth and patch discriminator. We evaluate our model end-to-end with the publicly available datasets CelebA-HQ and Places2 and demonstrate that images of higher quality can be obtained to the existing state-of-the-art approaches.
