An Interactive Tool Suite For Embossing 2D Images
G. Antonopoulos and I. Fudos
The 5th International Conference on Signal-Image Technology and Internet-Based Systems , Marrakech
We report on the development of a tool suite for rapidly creating high quality 3D embossed portraits using a single 2D snapshot. Our goal is to establish a mapping from 2-D to 3D and then interactively edit the embossed 3D surface and correct any artifacts that have occurred. To establish the initial mapping, we use an enhanced grayscale representation of the image and then employ techniques such as edge detection, region growing and interactive-iterative enhancement to obtain an flawless 3D embossing surface. Finally, we present an evaluation of the usability of our embossing tool suite.
