  • A Bayesian Approach to Digital Matting

    Before I launch into the post, Mods please move if a better location other than Salon is found, I was unsure as it is most definitely heavy duty Photoshop

    Came across this site on a random browsing session A Bayesian Approach to Digital Matting It has a fairly heavy duty technical explanation of the approach attached in an interesting PDF. Not being so technically minded myself it's all pretty much above me, but I thought I would share this post to see if any of you 'under the hooders' were interested.

    Still I know enough to see that it looks interesting

    Maybe I missed something, but it seems to be heavy on the math and theory, but lacking in practical application. I failed to see a link that told how, specifically, they came about making their example masks.
    Put me on Mike's side of the room.

      On first glance it appears the logic would be to make the best mask you find the most contrast (color, luminosity) between the subject and the background and then exploit that difference

      that's how I understood it

        I don't know anything about it except what is available on the site.

        Is it possible to hide a digital adjustment?
        by Eigil Skovgaard
        I have a hypothetical question:
        Is it possible to scan a color transparency film (yes!), then make digital corrections (yes!) AND THEN copy or expose the result back to the same type of film without leaving ANY traces of the digital corrective process?
        Best regards,

        New website for artists...
        by G. Couch
        For those interested, I am in the process of creating a website for digital artists -

        It's focused primarily on "Digital Printmaking". What exactly do I mean by that?... think of printmaking in art terms- Woodcuts, Lithography, Etchings, Serigraphy,...

        Optical vs Digital Image Stabilization
        by albatrosss
        First let me state that I don't know if this is in the correct section.

        I understand the difference between optical and digital zoom but I really could use a simple explanation as to the difference between Optical and Digital stabilization. Is one superior to the other and if so, how?...
