  • In order to realize automatic region matching between source and target images, a multi-source local color transfer algorithm based on texture similarity is proposed.The source and target images are segmented into a set of regions using an image segmentation algorithm. It computes the texture features of each region through the gray level co-occurrence matrix and then constructs corresponding texture feature vectors. The authors measure the relevance between the target and source regions by computing the Euclidean distance between corresponding texture feature vectors. The source region having the largest relevance with the target region is selected as the transfer source. Complete the color transfer by performing color space transformation and linear conversion on color values. Experimental results concerning on multi-source local color transfer and gray image colorization verify the validity of the proposed algorithm.
