To fill holes in photographs of structured, man made environments, we propose a technique which automatically adjusts and clones large image patches that have similar structure. These source patches can come from elsewhere in the same image, or from other images shot from different perspectives. Two significant developments of this work are the ability to automatically detect and adjust source patches whose macrostructure is compatible with the hole region, and alternately, to interactively specify a user's desired search regions. In contrast to existing photomontage algorithms which either synthesize microstructure or require careful user interaction to fill holes, our approach handles macrostructure with an adjustable degree of automation.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
