    A content-based image retrieval system works on the low-level visual features of a user input query image,which makes it difficult for the users to formulate the query and also does notgive satisfactory retrieval results. In the past image annotation was proposedas the best possible system for CBIR which works on the principle of automaticallyassigning keywords to images that help image retrieval users to query imagesbased on these keywords. Image annotation is often regarded as the problem ofimage classification where images are represented by some low-level featuresand the mapping between low-level features and high-level concepts (classlabels) is done by supervised learning algorithms. In a CBIR system learning ofeffective feature representations and similarity measures is very important forthe retrieval performance. Semantic gap has been the key challenge for thisproblem. A semantic gap exists between low-level image pixels captured bymachines and the high-level semantics perceived by humans. The recent successesof deep learning techniques especially Convolutional Neural Networks insolving computer vision applications has inspired me to work on this thesis soas to solve the problem of CBIR using a dataset of annotated images.

    3. Our Motivation and Approach

    Deep learning achieves state-of-the-art performance on semantic image segmentation tasks. Our automatic portrait segmentation method also applies deep learning to the problem of semantic segmentation, while leveraging portrait-specific features. Our framework is shown in Figure 3 and is detailed in Section 3.3. We start with a brief description of the fully convolutional neural network (FCN) [LSD14] upon which our technique is built.

    5.4. Automatic Segmentation for Image Stylization

    Due to the high performance of our automatic portrait segmentations, automatic portrait stylization schemes can be implemented in which the subject is considered independently of the background. Such approaches provide increased flexibility in letting the subject stand out while minimizing potentially distracting elements in the background.

    由于我们的自动人像分割的高性能,可以实现自动肖像风格化方案,其中主体被独立于背景考虑。 这种方法提供了更大的灵活性,让主体脱颖而出,同时最大限度地减少背景中潜在的分散元素。

    We show a number of examples in Figure 12, using the stylization methods of [SPB∗14] and [Win11], as well as several several Photoshop [ADO] filters with varying effects such as Palette Knife, Glass Smudge Stick and Fresco. After applying the filters to the portrait subject, we either perform background replacement, or we reapply the method that was used on the subject, but with different settings to weaken the background’s detail and draw the viewer’s attention to the subject. Because of our segmentation accuracy, our results have no artifacts across the segmentation boundaries and allow for precise control of the relative amount of focus on the subject with minimal user interaction.

    我们使用[SPB * 14]和[Win11]的风格化方法,以及几个具有不同效果的Photoshop [ADO]滤镜,如调色板刀,玻璃涂抹棒和壁画,在图12中显示了一些示例。 将滤镜应用到肖像主体后,我们要么执行背景替换,要么重新应用主体上使用的方法,但使用不同的设置来削弱背景的细节,并将观看者的注意力吸引到主题上。 由于我们的分割准确性,我们的结果在分割边界上没有任何人为因素,并且能够以最少的用户交互精确控制对象的相对焦点量。

    3.3. Our Approach

    Our approach incorporates portrait-specific knowledge into the model learned by our CNNs. To accomplish this, we leverage robust facial feature detectors [SLC09] to generate auxiliary position and shape channels. These channels are then included as inputs along with the portrait color information into the first convolutional layer of our network.

    我们的方法将用CNNs学习到的特定肖像的知识注入到了模型中。 为了做到这一点,我们利用鲁棒的面部特征检测器[SLC09]来生成辅助的位置通道和形状通道。 然后将这些通道作为输入,并与肖像的颜色信息一同包含到网络的第一个卷积层。(译者注:如图3下方所示的网络结构第一层,由5个Channels组成,分别是R、G、B、Mean Mask、Normalized x and y,后两个分别为位置通道和形状通道。)

    Position Channels The objective of these channels is to encode the pixel positions relative to the face. The input image pixel position only gives limited information about the portrait because the subjects are framed differently in each picture. This motivates us to provide two additional channels to the network, the normalized x and y channels where x and y are the pixel coordinates. We define them by first detecting facial feature points [SLC09] and estimating a homography transform $tau$ between the fitted features and a canonical pose as shown in Figure 3 (d). We defined the normalized x channel as $tau(x_{img})$ where $x_{img}$ is the x coordinate of the pixels with its zero in face center in the image. We define the normalized y channel similarly. Intuitively, this procedure expresses the position of each pixel in a coordinate system centered on the face and scaled according to the face size.

    位置通道 这些通道的目的是编码相对于脸部的像素位置。 输入图像的像素位置只给出了关于肖像的有限信息,因为目标在不同的图像中具有不同的外框。 这鼓励我们为网络提供两个额外的通道, normalized x and y 通道,其中 xy 是像素坐标。 我们通过首先检测面部特征点[SLC09]并估计拟合特征和典型姿态之间的单应变换 $tau$ 来定义它们,如图3(d)所示。 我们将归一化的 x 通道定义为 $tau(x_{img})$ ,其中 $x_{img}$ 是图像中脸部中心为零的像素的x坐标。 我们同样类似地定义标准化的 y 通道。 直观地说,该过程表示在以脸部为中心的坐标系中各个像素的位置,并根据面部尺寸进行了缩放。

    Shape Channel In addition to the position channel, we found that adding a shape channel further improves segmentation. A typical portrait includes the subject’s head and some amount of the shoulders, arms, and upper body. By including a channel in which a subject-shaped region is aligned with the actual portrait subject, we are explicitly providing a feature to the network which should be a reasonable initial estimate of the final solution. To generate this channel, we first compute an aligned average mask from our training dataset. For each training portrait-mask pair {Pi,Mi}, we transform Mi using a homography Ti which is estimated from the facial feature points of Pi and a canonical pose. We compute the mean of these transformed masks as:

    形状通道 除了位置通道,我们发现添加一个形状通道进一步改善了分割。 典型的肖像包括主体的头部和肩膀、手臂以及上半身。 通过包含一个形状区域目标与真实肖像目标对齐的通道,我们明确地向网络提供一个特征,该特征应该是最终结果的合理初始估计。 为了生成这个通道,我们首先从我们的训练数据集中计算一个对齐的均值掩膜。 对于每个进行训练的肖像-掩膜对{Pi,Mi},我们使用单应性Ti来变换Mi,该Ti是从Pi的面部特征点和典型姿态的估计得到的。 我们计算这些变换后的掩膜的平均值为:

    金莎娱乐 3

    where wi is a matrix indicating whether the pixel in Mi is outside the image after the transform Ti. The value will be 1 if the pixel is inside the image, otherwise, it is set as 0. The operator ◦ denotes element-wise multiplication. This mean mask M which has been aligned to a canonical pose can then be similarly transformed to align with the facial feature points of the input portrait.

    其中wi是一个矩阵,指示Mi中的像素经过Ti变换后是否处于图像之外。 如果像素位于图像内,则值为1,否则设为0。 运算符◦表示元素乘法。 这意味着已经和典型姿态对齐的掩膜M接下来可以类似地变换为与输入肖像的脸部特征点对齐。

    Figure 3 shows our PortraitFCN automatic portrait segmentation system including the additional position and shape input channels. As shown in Figure 4, our method outperforms all other tested approaches. We will quantify the importance of the position and shape channels in Section 5.1.

    图3显示了我们的PortraitFCN 自动人像分割系统,包括附加的位置和形状输入通道。 如图4所示,我们的方法胜过所有其他测试方法。 我们将在5.1节中量化位置和形状通道的重要性。

    6. Conclusions and FutureWork

    In this paper we propose a high performance automatic portrait segmentation method. The system is built on deep convolutional neural network which is able to leverage portrait specific cues. We construct a large portrait image dataset with enough portrait segmentation and ground-truth data to enable effective training and testing of our model. Based on the efficient segmentation, a number of automatic portrait applications are demonstrated. Our system could fail when the background and foreground have very small contrast. We treat this as the limitation of our method. In the future, we will improve our model for higher accuracy and extend the framework to the portrait video segmentation.

    2.3. Image Matting

    Image matting is the other important technique for image selection. For natural image matting, a thorough survey can be found in [WC07]. Here we review some popular works relevant to our technique. The matting problem is ill-posed and severely under-constrained. These methods generally require initial user defined foreground and background annotations, or alternatively a trimap which encodes the foreground, background and unknown matte values. According to different formulations, the matte’s unknown pixels can be estimated by Bayesian matting [CCSS01], Poisson matting [SJTS04], Closed-form matting [LLW08], KNN matting [CLT13], etc. To evaluate the different methods, Rhemann et al. [RRW∗09] proposed a quantitative online benchmarks. For our purposes, the disadvantages of these methods is their relianceon the user to specify the trimap.

    图像抠像是图像选择的另一个重要技术。 对于自然图像抠图,可以在[WC07]中找到详细的调查。 在这里我们回顾一些与我们的技术相关的热门作品。扣图问题是病态的并且受约束的。 这些方法通常需要初始的用户定义的前景和背景注释,或者是对前景,背景和未知遮罩值进行编码的trimap。 根据不同的公式,通过Bayesian matting [CCSS01],Poisson matting [SJTS04],Closed-matting [LLW08],KNN matting [CLT13]等方法可以估计遮罩的未知像素。为了评估不同的方法,Rhemann等。 [RRW * 09]提出了一个定量的在线基准。 就我们的目的而言,这些方法的缺点是它们依赖于用户来指定trimap。

    2、Cross-Media Retrieval

    2.1. Interactive Image Selection

    We divide interactive image segmentation methods into scribble-based, painting-based and boundary-based methods. In the scribble-based methods, the user specifies a number of foreground and background scribbles as boundary conditions for a variety of different optimizations including graph cut methods [BJ01,LSTS04,RKB04], geodesic distance scheme [BS07], random walks framework [Gra06] and the dense CRF method [KK11].

    我们将交互式图像分割方法划分为基于涂色,基于绘画和边界的方法。 在基于涂鸦的方法中,用户指定许多前景和背景涂鸦作为用于各种不同优化的边界条件,包括图形切割方法[BJ01,LSTS04,RKB04],测地距离方案[BS07],随机游走框架[Gra06 ]和密集的CRF方法[KK11]。

    Compared with scribble-based methods, the painting based method only needs to paint over the object the user wants to select. Popular methods and implementations include painting image selection [LSS09], and Adobe Photoshop quick selection [ADO].

    与基于涂鸦的方法相比,基于绘画的方法只需要绘制用户想要选择的对象。 流行的方法和实现包括绘制图像选择[金莎娱乐,LSS09]和Adobe Photoshop快速选择[ADO]。

    The object can also be selected by tracing along the boundary. For example, Snakes [KWT88] and Intelligent Scissors [MB95] compute the object boundary by tracking the user’s input rough boundaries. However, this requires accurate user interactions which can be very difficult, especially in the face of complicated boundaries.

    该对象也可以通过沿边界追踪来选择。 例如,Snakes [KWT88]和Intelligent Scissors [MB95]通过跟踪用户输入的粗糙边界来计算物体边界。 但是,这需要准确的用户交互,这可能是非常困难的,尤其是在面临复杂的边界时。

    Although the interactive selection methods are prevalent in image processing software, their tedious and complicated interaction limits many potentially automatic image processing applications.

    Figure 5: Some example portrait images with different variations in our dataset.


    Data Preparation We collected 1800 portrait images from Flickr and manually labeled them with Photoshop quick selection. We captured a range of portrait types but biased the Flickr searches toward natural self portraits that were captured with mobile frontfacing cameras. These are challenging images that represent the typical cases that we would like to handle. We then ran a face detector on each image, and automatically scaled and cropped the image to 600×800 according the bounding box of the face detection result as shown in Figure 3(a) and (b). This process excludes images for which the face detector failed. Some of the portrait images in our dataset are shown in Figure 5 and display large variations in age, color, background, clothing, accessories, head position, hair style, etc. We include such large variations in our dataset to make our model more robust to challenging inputs. We split the 1800 labeled images into a 1500 image training dataset and a 300 image testing/validation dataset. Because more data tends to produce better results, we augmented our training dataset by perturbing the rotations and scales of our original training images. We synthesize four new scales {0.6,0.8,1.2,1.5} and four new rotations {−45◦,−22◦,22◦,45◦}. We also apply four different gamma transforms to get more color variation. The gamma values are {0.5,0.8,1.2,1.5}. With these transforms, we generate more than 19,000 training images.


    Model Training We setup our model training and testing experiment in Caffe [JSD∗14]. With the model illustrated in Figure 3, we use a stochastic gradient descent (SGD) solver with softmax loss function. We start with a FCN-8s model which pre-trained on the PASCAL VOC 2010 20-class object segmentation dataset. While it is preferable to incrementally fine-tune, starting with the topmost layer and working backward, we have to fine-tune the entire network since our pre-trained model does not contain weights for the aligned mean mask and x and y channels in the first convolutional layer.We initialize these unknown weights with random values and fine-tune with a learning rate of 10−4. As is common practice in fine-tuning neural networks, we select this learning rate by trying several rates and visually inspecting the loss as shown in Figure 6. We found that too small and too large learning rate did not successfully converge or over fitting.

    模型训练 我们在Caffe [JSD * 14]中设置模型训练和测试实验。使用图3所示的模型,我们使用具有softmax损失函数的随机梯度下降(SGD)优化算法。 我们从FCN-8s模型开始,该模型预先在PASCAL VOC 2010 20类对象的分割数据集上进行了训练。 虽然最好从最顶层开始逐步进行微调,但是我们必须对整个网络进行微调,因为我们的预先训练的模型不包含对齐的均值掩码和x和y通道的权重。 第一卷积层。我们用随机值初始化这些未知的权值,并以10e-4的学习率进行微调。 正如在微调神经网络中常见的做法一样,我们通过尝试几个比率来选择这个学习速率,并在视觉上检查损失,如图6所示。我们发现太小和太大的学习速率没有成功地收敛或过度拟合。

    Running Time for Training and Testing We conduct training and testing on a single Nvidia Titan X GPU. Our model training requires about one day to learn a good model with about 40,000 Caffe SGD iterations. For the testing phase, the running time on a 600×800 color image is only 0.2 second on the same GPU. We also run our experiment on the Intel Core i7-5930K CPU which takes 4 seconds using the MKL-optimized build of Caffe.

    训练和测试的运行时间 我们在单个Nvidia Titan X GPU上进行训练和测试。 我们的模型训练需要大约一天的时间才能学习一个有大约40,000个Caffe SGD迭代的好模型。 在测试阶段,600×800彩色图像在同一GPU上的运行时间仅为0.2秒。 我们还在Intel Core i7-5930K CPU上运行我们的实验,使用经过MKL优化的Caffe构建需要4秒。

    1、Image Summarization

    2.2. CNNs for Image segmentation

    A number of approaches based on deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have been proposed to tackle image segmentation tasks. They apply CNNs in two main ways. The first one is to learn the meaningful features and then apply classification methods to infer the pixel label. Representative methods include [AHG∗12,MYS14,FCNL13], but they are optimized to work for a lot of different classes, rather than focusing specifically on portraits. As with our FCN-8s tests, one can use their “person class” for segmentation, but the results are not accurate enough on portraits to be used for stylization.

    已经提出了许多基于深度卷积神经网络(CNN)的方法来处理图像分割任务。 他们以两种主要方式应用CNN。 首先是学习有意义的特征,然后应用分类方法来推断像素标签。 代表性的方法包括[AHG * 12,MYS14,FCNL13],但它们被优化为适用于许多不同的类别,而不是特别专注于肖像。 与我们的FCN-8s测试一样,人们可以使用他们的“人物类”进行分割,但是对于用于风格化的肖像,结果不够精确。

    The second way is to directly learn a nonlinear model from the images to the label map. Long et al. [LSD14] introduce fully convolutional networks in which several well-known classification networks are “convolutionalized”. In their work, they also introduce a skip architecture in which connections from early layers to later layers were used to combine low-level and high-level featurecues. Following this framework, DeepLab [CPK∗14] and CRFas-RNN [ZJR∗15] apply dense CRF optimization to refine the CNNs predicted label map. Because deep CNNs need large-scale training data to achieve good performance, Dai et al. [DHS15] proposed the BoxSup which only requires easily obtained bounding box annotations instead of the pixel labeled data. It produced comparable results compared with the pixel labeled training data under the same CNNs settings.

    第二种方法是直接从图像学习非线性模型到标签图。 Long等人 [LSD14]引入了完全卷积网络,其中几个着名的分类网络被“卷积”。 在他们的工作中,他们还引入了一种跳过架构,在这种架构中,从早期层到后期层的连接被用来组合低层和高层功能。 在此框架之后,DeepLab [CPK * 14]和CRFas-RNN [ZJR * 15]应用密集的CRF优化来细化CNN预测的标签图。 由于深度CNN需要大规模的训练数据才能取得良好的表现,Dai等 [DHS15]提出的BoxSup只需要容易获得的边界框注释而不是像素标记的数据。 与相同的CNN设置下的像素标记的训练数据相比,它产生了可比较的结果。

    These CNNs were designed for image segmentation tasks and the state-of-the-art accuracy for Pascal VOC is around 70%. Although they outperform other methods, the accuracy is still insufficient for inclusion in an automatic portrait processing system.

    这些CNN是为图像分割任务设计的,而Pascal VOC的最新精度约为70%。 虽然它们胜过其他方法,但准确性仍然不足以包含在自动肖像处理系统中。

    2.4. Semantic Stylization

    Our portrait segmentation technique incorporates high level semantic understanding of portrait images to help it achieve state of the art segmentation results which can then be used for subject-aware portrait stylization. Here we highlight a sampling of other works which also take advantage of portrait-specific semantics for image processing and stylization. [SPB∗14] uses facial feature locations and sift flow to create robust dense mappings between user input portraits, and professional examples to allow for facial feature-accurate transfer of image style. In [LCODL08], a database of inter-facialfeature distance vectors and user attractiveness ratings is used to compute 2D warp fields which can take an input portrait, and automatically remap it to a more attractive pose and expression. And finally [CLR∗04] is able to generate high-quality non-photorelistic drawings by leveraging a semantic decomposition of the main face features and hair for generating artistic strokes.

    我们的肖像分割技术结合了对肖像图像的高级语义理解,以帮助它实现最先进的分割结果,然后可以用于主题感知肖像风格化。 在这里,我们重点介绍一些其他作品的样本,这些作品还利用肖像特定语义进行图像处理和风格化。 [SPB * 14]使用面部特征位置和筛选流程在用户输入肖像之间创建鲁棒的密集映射,并提供专业示例,以实现面部特征精确的图像样式转换。 在[LCODL08]中,使用面部特征间距向量和用户吸引力评级的数据库来计算2D扭曲场,其可以采用输入肖像,并自动将其重新映射到更有吸引力的姿势和表情。 最后[CLR * 04]能够通过利用主要脸部特征和头发的语义分解来产生高质量的扣图绘画,以产生艺术笔触。

    5.1. Quantitative and Visual Analysis

    Based on our labeled 300 testing images, we quantitatively compare our method with previous methods. The segmentation error is measured by the standard metric Interaction-over-Union (IoU) accuracy which is computed as the area of intersection of the output with the ground truth, divided by the union of their areas as,

    基于我们标记的300张测试图片,我们将我们的方法与以前的方法进行了定量比较。 分割误差是通过标准的度量标准度量相互作用(IoU)精确度来度量的,计算结果是输出与样本真值的交集面积除以它们面积的并集,

    金莎娱乐 7

    We first compare our method with a standard graph-cut method [BJ01]. In our graph-cut method, we start with an aligned mean mask similar to the one in our shape channel. This soft mask is aligned with the detected facial features [SLC09] of the input image and is used to set the unary term in our graph cut optimization.

    我们首先将我们的方法与标准的图形切割方法[BJ01]进行比较。 在我们的图形切割方法中,我们从一个与我们的形状通道类似的对齐的均值掩模开始。 该软掩模与输入图像的检测到的面部特征[SLC09]对齐,并用于在我们的图形切割优化中设置一元项。

    We also run the result of fully convolutional network (FCN-8s) from [LSD14]. We look only at the results of the person class and ignore the remaining 19 class object labels. As reported in Table 1, the mean IoU accuracy in our testing dataset of graph-cut is 80.02% while the FCN-8s (Person Class) is only 73.09%. In our testing data, the graph-cut fails for examples whose background and foreground color distribution is similar, or in which the content (texture, details, etc) is complex. As for the FCN-8s, it fails because it has no consideration of the portrait data knowledge. PortraitFCN , on the other hand, achieves 95.91% IoU accuracy which is a significant improvement.

    我们还从[LSD14]运行完全卷积网络(FCN-8s)的结果。 我们只看人物类的结果,忽略其余的19个类对象标签。 如表1所示,我们测试数据集的平均IoU准确率为80.02%,而FCN-8s(Person Class)仅为73.09%。 在我们的测试数据中,对于背景和前景颜色分布相似或者内容(纹理,细节等)复杂的例子,图形切割失败。 对于FCN-8,由于没有考虑到肖像数据的知识,所以失败了。 另一方面,PortraitFCN 的IoU准确度达到了95.91%,这是一个显着的进步。

    Table 1: Quantitative Comparison results of different automatic portrait segmentation method.


    In order to verify the effectiveness of the proposed position and shape channels, we setup our PortraitFCN model only with the mean mask channel and only with the normalized x and y channels. As shown in Table 1, considering the shape and position channels together achieves the best performance. The reason is that the position channels help to reduce the errors which are far from the face region while the shape channel helps to get the right label in the foreground portrait region. Figure 4 is an example of the type of highly distracting error corrected by the position and shape channels of PortraitFCN . In fact, running PortraitFCN on our test set produces 60 segmentations which exhibit this type of error, while that number drops to 6 when using PortraitFCN .

    为了验证所提出的位置和形状通道的有效性,我们仅使用均值掩膜通道来设置我们的PortraitFCN 模型,同时又只使用归一化的x和y通道。 如表1所示,考虑形状和位置通道在一起后达到最佳性能。 原因是位置通道有助于减少远离人脸区域的误差,而形状通道有助于在前景人像区域获得正确的标签。 图4是由PortraitFCN 的位置和形状通道校正的高度分散注意力错误的类型的示例。 实际上,在我们的测试集上运行PortraitFCN会产生60个显示这种类型错误的分段,而在使用PortraitFCN 时这个数字会降低到6。

    Besides the quantitative analysis, we also show some visual comparison results in Figure 7 from our testing dataset which reinforces the quantitative analysis. More results are provided in our supplementary file.

    Our automatic portrait segmentation system is robust to the portrait scale, rotation, color and occlusion variations. This is because our proposed position and shape channels allow the network to take these variations into account. Further, the consideration of these variations in our training dataset also helps. We show some examples in Figure 8.

    我们的自动人像分割系统对肖像缩放,旋转,颜色和遮挡变化都很有效。 这是因为我们提出的位置和形状的渠道,使网络考虑到这些变化。 而且,考虑到我们训练数据集中的这些变化也是有帮助的。 我们在图8中显示一些例子。

    2、文字可视化:文字->图像,text categorization model?选择文本语义相近的image作为视觉表达,PTS->ITJS


    With the rapid adoption of camera smartphones, the self portrait image has become conspicuously abundant in digital photography. A study by Samsung UK estimated that about 30% of smart phonephotos taken were self portraits [Hal], and more recently, HTC’simaging specialist Symon Whitehorn reported that in some markets,self portraits make up 90% of smartphone photos [Mic].

    随着相机智能手机的迅速普及,自拍肖像在数码摄影中的应用也日益丰富。 三星英国的一项研究估计,约30%的智能手机拍照是自画像[哈尔],最近,HTC的成像专家Symon Whitehorn报告说,在某些市场上,自拍肖像占智能手机照片的90%[Mic]。

    The bulk of these portraits are captured by casual photographers who often lack the necessary skills to consistently take great portraits, or to successfully post-process them. Even with the plethora of easy-to-use automatic image filters that are amenable to novice photographers, good portrait post-processing requires treating the subject separately from the background in order to make the subject stand out. There are many good user-guided tools for creating masks for selectively treating portrait subjects, but these tools can still be tedious and difficult to use, and remain an obstacle for casual photographers who want their portraits to look good. While many image filtering operations can be used when selectively processing portrait photos, a few that are particularly applicableto portraits include background replacement, portrait style transfer [SPB∗14], color and tone enhancement [HSGL11], and local feature editing [LCDL08]. While these can all be used to great effect with little to no user interaction, they remain inaccessible to casual photographers due to their reliance on a good selection.

    这些肖像中的大部分都是被临时摄影师拍摄的,他们往往缺乏持续拍摄精美肖像的必要技能,或者成功对其进行后期处理。即使有许多易于使用的自动图像过滤器,适合新手摄影师,良好的人像后期处理需要将被摄体与背景分开处理,以使主体脱颖而出。有许多好的用户指导工具可以创建用于选择性处理肖像主题的蒙版,但是这些工具仍然是乏味且难以使用的,并且对于希望他们的肖像看起来不错的休闲摄影师来说仍然是障碍。虽然在选择性处理人像照片时可以使用许多图像滤镜操作,但是一些特别适用于人像的包括背景替换,肖像样式转换[SPB * 14],色彩和色调增强[HSGL11]以及局部特征编辑[LCDL08]。虽然这些都可以用来很好的效果,但很少或没有用户的互动,他们仍然是由于依赖于一个很好的选择,随便摄影师无法访问。

    A fully automatic portrait segmentation method is required to make these techniques accessible to the masses. Unfortunately, designing such an automatic portrait segmentation system is nontrivial. Even with access to robust facial feature detectors and smart selection techniques such as graph cuts, complicated backgroundsand backgrounds whose color statistics are similar to those of the subject readily lead to poor results.

    需要全自动的人像分割方法来使这些技术能够被大众接受。 不幸的是,设计这样的自动纵向分割系统是非常重要的。 即使能够使用强健的面部特征检测器和智能选择技术(如图形裁剪,复杂的背景和背景,其颜色统计类似于主题)也容易导致较差的结果。

    In this paper, we propose a fully automatic portrait segmentation technique that takes a portrait image and produces a score map of equal resolution. This score map indicates the probability that a given pixel belongs to the subject, and can be used directly as a soft mask, or thresholded to a binary mask or trimap for use with image matting techniques. To accomplish this, we take advantage of recent advances in deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) which have set new performance standards for sematic segmentation tasks such as Pascal VOC [EGW∗10] and Microsoft COCO [LMB∗14]. We augment one such network with portrait-specific knowledge toachieve extremely high accuracy that is more than sufficient for most automatic portrait post-processing techniques, unlocking arange of portrait editing operations previously unavailable to the novice photographer, while simultaneously reducing the amount of work required to generate these selections for intermediate and advanced users.

    在本文中,我们提出了一种全自动的人像分割技术,它可以拍摄人像,并生成等分的分数图。 该分数图指示给定像素属于对象的概率,并且可以直接用作软掩膜,或者阈值化为二值掩膜或三维贴图用于图像抠像技术。 为此,我们利用最近在深度卷积神经网络(CNNs)方面的进展,为卷积分割任务设立了新的性能标准,如Pascal VOC [EGW * 10]和Microsoft COCO [LMB * 14]。 我们增加一个具有肖像特定知识的网络,以达到极高的准确度,这对于大多数自动肖像后处理技术来说已经足够了,解开了以前对于新手摄影师不可用的一些肖像编辑操作,同时减少了需要为中级和高级用户生成这些选择。

    To our knowledge, our method is the first one designed for automatic portrait segmentation. The main contributions of our approach are:

    • We extend the FCN-8s framework [LSD14] to leverage domain specific knowledge by introducing new portrait position and shape input channels.
    • We build a portrait image segmentation dataset and benchmark for our model training and testing.
    • We augment several interactive portrait editing methods with our method to make them fully automatic.

    就我们所知,我们的方法是第一个为自动纵向分割而设计的方法。 我们的方法的主要贡献是:

    • 我们扩展了FCN-8框架[LSD14],通过引入新的纵向位置和形状输入通道来利用领域特定的知识。
    • 我们为我们的模型训练和测试建立一幅肖像图像分割数据集和基准。
    • 我们使用我们的方法增强了多种交互式肖像编辑方法,使其完全自动化。

    5.2. Post-processing

    Our estimated segmentation result provides a good trimap initialization for image matting. As shown in Figure 9, we generate a trimap by setting the pixels within a 10-pixel radius of the segmentation boundary as the “unknown”. KNN matting [CLT13] is performed with the trimap shown in (b) and the result is shown in (c). The matting performs very well in part because our segmentation provides an accurate initial segmentation boundary.

    我们估计的分割结果为图像抠像提供了一个很好的trimap初始化。 如图9所示,我们通过将分割边界的10像素半径内的像素设置为“未知”来生成trimap。 用(b)所示的trimap进行KNN matting [CLT13],结果如(c)所示。 部分因为我们的分割提供了一个准确的初始分割边界,所以成就很好。

    3.1. Fully Convolutional Neutral Networks

    As mentioned in the previous section, many modern semantic image segmentation frameworks are based on the fully convolutional neutral network (FCN) [LSD14] which replaces the fully connected layers of a classification network with convolutional layers. The FCN uses a spatial loss function and is formulated as a pixel regression problem against the ground-truth labeled mask. The objective function can be written as,

    如前所述,许多现代语义图像分割框架都是基于完全卷积中性网络(FCN)[LSD14],它用卷积层代替分类网络的完全连接层。 FCN使用空间损失函数,并将其表述为针对真实数据标记掩码的像素回归问题。 目标函数可以写成,

    金莎娱乐 14

    where $p$ is the pixel index of an image. $X_{theta}(p)$ is the FCN regression function in pixel $p$ with parameter $theta$. The loss function $e(...)$ measures the error between the regression output and the ground truth $ell(p)$. FCNs are typically composed of the following types of layers:

    其中$p$是图像的像素索引。 $X_{theta}(p)$是参数$theta$下$p$位置像素的FCN回归函数。 损失函数$e(...)$测量回归输出和真值$ell(p)$之间的误差。 FCN通常由以下类型的层组成:

    Convolution Layers This layer applies a number of convolution kernels to the previous layer. The convolution kernels are trained to extract important features from the images such as edges, corners or other informative region representations.

    卷积层 该层将大量的卷积核应用到前一层。 训练卷积核以从图像中提取重要的特征,例如边缘,角落或其他信息区域表示。

    ReLU Layers The ReLU is a nonlinear activation to the input. The function is $f(x) = max(0,x)$. This nonlinearity helps the network compute nontrivial solutions on the training data.

    ReLU层 ReLU是对输入的非线性激活。 函数是$f(x) = max(0,x)$。 这种非线性有助于网络计算训练数据的非平凡解。

    Pooling Layers These layers compute the max or average value of a particular feature over a region in order to reduce the feature’s spatial variance.

    池化层 这些层计算区域上特定特征的最大值或平均值,以减少特征的空间变化。

    Deconvolution Layers Deconvolution layers learn kernels to upsample the previous layers. This layer is central in making the output of the network match the size of the input image after previous pooling layers have downsampled the layer size.

    解卷积层 解卷积层学习卷积核去上采样前一层。 在先前的池化层下采样网络层大小后,该层是使网络的输出与输入图像的大小相匹配的重点。

    Loss Layer This layer is used during training to measure the error (Equation 1) between the output of the network and the ground truth. For a segmentation labeling task, the loss layer is computed by the softmax function.

    损失层 在训练期间使用该层来测量网络输出与真实值之间的误差(公式1)。 对于分割标签任务,损失层由softmax函数计算。

    Weights for these layers are learned by backpropagation using stochastic gradient descent (SGD) solver.

    The fully convolutional network (FCN) used for this work is originally trained for semantic object segmentation on the Pascal VOC dataset for twenty class object segmentation. Although the dataset includes a person class, it still suffers from poor segmentation accuracy on our portrait image dataset as shown in Figure 4 (b). The reasons are mainly: 1) The low resolution of people in the Pascal VOC constrains the effectiveness of inference on our high resolution portrait image dataset. 2) The original model outputs multiple labels to indicate different object classes which introduces ambiguities in our task which only needs two labels. We address these two issues by labeling a new portrait segmentation dataset for fine-tuning the model and changing the label outputs to only the background and the foreground. We show results of this approach and refer to it in the paper as PortraitFCN.

    用于这项工作的完全卷积网络(FCN)最初是针对二十类对象分割的Pascal VOC数据集上的语义对象分割进行训练的。 尽管数据集包含了一个人类,但是仍然会对我们的肖像图像数据集的分割精度不好,如图4(b)所示。 其原因主要是:1)Pascal VOC分辨率低,限制了我们高分辨率人像图像数据集推理的有效性。 2)原始模型输出多个标签来指示不同的对象类别,这在我们的任务中引入了模糊性,其仅需要两个标签。 我们通过标记新的纵向分割数据集来解决这两个问题,以便微调模型并将标签输出更改为只有背景和前景。 我们展示了这种方法的结果,并在论文中将其称为PortraitFCN。

    Although PortraitFCN improves the accuracy for our task as shown in Figure 4 (c), it is still has issues with clothing and background regions. A big reason for this is the translational invariance that is inherent in CNNs. Subsequent convolution and pooling layers incrementally trade spatial information for semantic information. While this is desirable for tasks such as classification, it means that we lose information that allows the network to learn, for example, the pixels that are far above and to the right of the face in 4 (c) are likely background.

    虽然PortraitFCN如图4(c)所示提高了我们的任务的准确性,但是在服装和背景区域仍然存在问题。 其中一个重要原因就是CNN固有的平移不变性。 随后的卷积和池化层逐步交换空间信息以获取语义信息。 虽然这对分类这样的任务来说是可取的,但这意味着我们失去了允许网络学习的信息,例如,4(c)中上方和脸部右侧看上去应是背景。

    To mitigate this, we propose the PortraitFCN model, described next, which injects spatial information extracted from the portrait, back into the FCN.

    为了减轻这一点,我们提出了PortraitFCN 模型,下面将介绍,它将从肖像中提取的空间信息注入到FCN中。

    5.3. User Study of Our Method

    The average 95.9% IoU portrait segmentation accuracy means that most of our results are close to the ground truth. In the cases where there are small errors, they can be quickly corrected using interactive methods that are initialized with our method’s result. The corrections are very fast when compared with starting from scratch. In order to verify this, we collected the number of interactions and time taken for a user to get the foreground selection with different interactive selection methods. 40 users with different backgrounds conducted selections for the 50 images from our testing dataset. We ask them to do the same thing using Photoshop quick selection [ADO] and lazy snapping [LSTS04] for each image. We also let the users do the quick selection initialized with our segmentation results. As shown in Figure 10, the number of interactions and time cost is largely reduced when compared with the quick selection and lazy snapping starting from only the original image.

    IoU纵向分割准确度的平均值为95.9%,这意味着我们的大部分结果都接近实际情况。 在出现小错误的情况下,可以使用根据我们的方法结果初始化的交互式方法快速纠正错误。 与从头开始相比,修正速度非常快。 为了验证这一点,我们收集了用户使用不同交互式选择方法获得前景选择的交互次数和时间。 40个不同背景的用户对我们的测试数据集中的50个图像进行了选择。 我们要求他们使用Photoshop快速选择[ADO]和懒惰捕捉[LSTS04]为每个图像做同样的事情。 我们也让用户使用我们的分割结果进行快速选择初始化。 如图10所示,与仅从原始图像开始的快速选择和懒惰对齐相比,交互的数量和时间成本大大降低。

    Portraiture is a major art form in both photography and painting. In most instances, artists seek to make the subject standout from its surrounding, for instance, by making it brighter or sharper. In the digital world, similar effects can be achieved by processing a portrait image with photographic or painterly filters that adapt to the semantics of the image. While many successful user-guided methods exist to delineate the subject, fully automatic techniques are lacking and yield unsatisfactory results. Our paper first addresses this problem by introducing a new automatic segmentation algorithm dedicated to portraits. We then build upon this result and describe several portrait filters that exploit our automatic segmentation algorithm to generate high-quality portraits.

    肖像画是摄影和绘画的主要艺术形式。 在大多数情况下,艺术家都试图让这个主题脱颖而出,例如,使它更明亮或更清晰。 在数字世界中,通过使用适合图像语义的摄影或绘画过滤器处理肖像图像,可以实现类似的效果。 虽然存在许多成功的用户引导方法来描述该主题,但缺乏全自动技术并且产生不令人满意的结果。 本文首先通过引入一种专门用于人像的自动分割算法来解决这个问题。 然后我们建立在这个结果的基础上,并描述了几种利用我们的自动分割算法生成高质量肖像的肖像滤镜。

    Our method achieved substantial performance improvements over other methods for the task of automatic portrait segmentation. We provide a detailed comparison to other approaches. A number of applications are also conducted because of the high performance segmentation accuracy.

    Figure 11: A few examples of semantic portrait filters that differentiate the subject from the background. A typical effect is background replacement to deal with cases where the input background is cluttered. Another useful possibility enabled by our approach is applying a coarse-scale effect on the background and a finer-scale filter on the subject to make it stand out. We build our filters upon the stylization techniques of Shih et al. [SPB∗14] and Winnemoeller et al. [Win11], and on some Photoshop filters (prefixed with PS). We encourage the reader to look at these results in the electronic document and to zoom in to better appreciate the details.

    In addition to allowing for selective processing of foreground and background pixels, our approach also make background replacement trivial. As shown in Figure 12 (b), we automatically replace the portrait background. In (c), a black-and-white with one color [WSL12] is automatically generated.

    除了允许选择性处理前景和背景像素,我们的方法还可以使背景更换变得不重要。 如图12(b)所示,我们自动替换人像背景。 在(c)中,自动生成一种颜色的黑白[WSL12]。

    The ability to eliminate the background can also help with other computer graphics and vision tasks, for example by limiting distracting background information in applications such as 3D face reconstruction, face view synthesis, and portrait style transfer [SPB∗14].

    消除背景的能力还可以帮助其他计算机图形和视觉任务,例如通过限制在诸如3D脸部重建,脸部视图合成和肖像风格传输[SPB * 14]的应用中分散背景信息。
