Using only a model that was trained to predict where people look at images, and no additional training data, we can produce a range of powerful editing effects for reducing distraction in images.
The sky is a major component of the appearance of a photograph, and its color and tone can strongly influence the mood of a picture.

Aside from the physical limits imposed by read noise and photon shot noise, these cameras are typically handheld, have small apertures and sensors, use mass-produced analog electronics that cannot easily be cooled, and are commonly used to photograph subjects that move, like children and pets.
Shallow depth-of-field is commonly used by photographers to isolate a subject from a distracting background.
As our first contribution, we describe the necessary correction steps and a compact representation for the input images in order to achieve a highly accurate approximation to the required ray space.
