Gary Greenfield: Combining Abstract Images using Texture Transfer. In: Bridges 2004. Pages 11–18



We present a new method for combining gray scale images to achieve an aesthetic composite. Our method treats one image as the source, the other as the destination, and invokes a fast texture transfer algorithm to replace colors in the destination with colors from the source in a manner dependent on the local structure of the two images. The stochastic nature of the algorithm allows for many variants of the composite to be examined. Our test suite consists of nine abstract images selected from images previously obtained using co-evolutionary simulated evolution for aesthetic purposes. We present and discuss several examples and indicate directions for future work.
