Submission + - Re-Defining Photo Manipulation ( 1

tekgoblin writes: "Photo Manipulation; the act of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception, Kevin Karsch, Varsha Hedau, David Forsyth and Derek Hoiem have created a method which will take this skill to a new level.

Their system works with inserting synthetic objects into existing photographs without requiring access to the scene or any additional scene measurements. In the video below you can see that with just a single image and a small amount of annotation the program creates a physical model of the scene which can then be used for realistic rendering of synthetic objects of any kind. The system automatically accounts for lighting interactions between the objects and the scene."
