Auto White-Balance Correction for Mixed-Illuminant Scenes

1 code implementation17 Sep 2021 Mahmoud Afifi, Marcus A. Brubaker, Michael S. Brown

Auto white balance (AWB) is applied by camera hardware at capture time to remove the color cast caused by the scene illumination.

Improving Single-Image Defocus Deblurring: How Dual-Pixel Images Help Through Multi-Task Learning

1 code implementation11 Aug 2021 Abdullah Abuolaim, Mahmoud Afifi, Michael S. Brown

Specifically, we show that jointly learning to predict the two DP views from a single blurry input image improves the network's ability to learn to deblur the image.

Cross-Camera Convolutional Color Constancy

1 code implementation ICCV 2021 Mahmoud Afifi, Jonathan T. Barron, Chloe LeGendre, Yun-Ta Tsai, Francois Bleibel

We present "Cross-Camera Convolutional Color Constancy" (C5), a learning-based method, trained on images from multiple cameras, that accurately estimates a scene's illuminant color from raw images captured by a new camera previously unseen during training.

HistoGAN: Controlling Colors of GAN-Generated and Real Images via Color Histograms

1 code implementation CVPR 2021 Mahmoud Afifi, Marcus A. Brubaker, Michael S. Brown

This goal has led to significant interest in methods that can intuitively control the appearance of images generated by GANs.

Interactive White Balancing for Camera-Rendered Images

1 code implementation26 Sep 2020 Mahmoud Afifi, Michael S. Brown

This is because RAW images have no photo-rendering operations applied and photo-editing software is able to apply WB and other photo-finishing procedures to render the final image.

Deep White-Balance Editing

4 code implementations CVPR 2020 Mahmoud Afifi, Michael S. Brown

The ISP rendering begins with a white-balance procedure that is used to remove the color cast of the scene's illumination.

What Else Can Fool Deep Learning? Addressing Color Constancy Errors on Deep Neural Network Performance

1 code implementation ICCV 2019 Mahmoud Afifi, Michael S. Brown

There is active research targeting local image manipulations that can fool deep neural networks (DNNs) into producing incorrect results.

Sensor-Independent Illumination Estimation for DNN Models

1 code implementation14 Dec 2019 Mahmoud Afifi, Michael S. Brown

Our learned space retains the linear property of the original sensor raw-RGB space and allows unseen camera sensors to be used on a single DNN model trained on this working space.

When Color Constancy Goes Wrong: Correcting Improperly White-Balanced Images

1 code implementation CVPR 2019 Mahmoud Afifi, Brian Price, Scott Cohen, Michael S. Brown

The challenge lies not in identifying what the correct white balance should have been, but in the fact that the in-camera white-balance procedure is followed by several camera-specific nonlinear color manipulations that make it challenging to correct the image's colors in post-processing.

Image Recoloring Based on Object Color Distributions

1 code implementation Eurographics 2019 - Short Papers 2019 Mahmoud Afifi, Brian Price, Scott Cohen, and Michael S. Brown

We present a method to perform automatic image recoloring based on the distribution of colors associated with objects present in an image.

As-projective-as-possible bias correction for illumination estimation algorithms

1 code implementation JOSA A 2019 Mahmoud Afifi, Abhijith Punnappurath, Graham Finlayson, Michael S. Brown

Recent work by Finlayson, Interface Focus, 2018 showed that a bias correction function can be formulated as a projective transform because the magnitude of the R, G, B illumination vector does not matter to the AWB procedure.

Image Posterization Using Fuzzy Logic and Bilateral Filter

no code implementations3 Feb 2018 Mahmoud Afifi

Image posterization is converting images with a large number of tones into synthetic images with distinct flat areas and a fewer number of tones.

Semantic White Balance: Semantic Color Constancy Using Convolutional Neural Network

1 code implementation1 Feb 2018 Mahmoud Afifi

The goal of computational color constancy is to preserve the perceptive colors of objects under different lighting conditions by removing the effect of color casts caused by the scene's illumination.
