Image Deformation by User-Defined Force Fields
Abstract: We present a new method for image deformation. The warping technique provides smooth distortion with intuitive and easy manipulation. Driven by a restrained force field, the input image is deformed gradually and continuously. The method allows us to customize the force fields and the region of interest manually through some simple steps. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and convenience of the approach.
