Interactive Shadow Removal

  • Han Gong

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisPhD


Shadows are ubiquitous in image and video, and their removal is of interest in both Computer Vision and Graphics. In this thesis, four methods for interactive shadow removal from single images are presented. Their improvements are made in user interaction, quality and robustness of shadow removal. We also show our state-of-the-art ground truth data set with variable scene categories for shadow removal and applications for shadow editing and its extension to video data processing.
