Press release from: Yissum

"In today's world of Social Media and huge amounts of photographs uploaded to the web there is a strong need for technologies that could enhance the pictures that are taken. The technology that is described can automatically enhance photos without any user intervention and could be of great value to users says", Tamir Huberman, VP Business Development at Yissum.

Technology was developed by Prof. Daniel Lischinski from the Computer Science department at the Hebrew University.

Main Highlights of the Technology:

► Digital images captured by non-professional photographers requires effective automatic photo enhancement.

► Most current systems manipulate tone and color over the whole image without understanding and accounting for the content of the image.

Our Innovation:

► Photo enhancement method that automatically improves the quality of specific image elements such as the sky, human faces, and underexposed salient regions by intelligently taking into account local and global semantics.

Key Features:

► Intelligently combines a variety of local tone mapping and color correction operations while taking into account image content.

► Using existing robust detectors of sky and people, image areas containing human faces, skin, blue sky and clouds, as well as salient underexposed parts of the scene are subjected to customized enhancement operators.

► Consistently significantly improves the majority of images

► Outperforms the automatic enhancement operators available in several popular products

Development Milestones:

► Seeking cooperation for licensing and commercialization

The Opportunity

► Currently, 30 billion images a year are uploaded to Facebook

► Automatic photograph enhancement tools are included in such popular commercial software packages as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Office Picture Manager, Google Picasa, and others.
