Sketch2Photo is an internet-based program that can take the rough, labeled sketch on the left and automagically turn it into the naff montage on the right. PhotoSketch can take any rough sketch, with the shape of each element labeled with its name, find images corresponding to each drawn element, judge which are a better match to the shapes, and then seamlessly merge it all into one single image. Sketch2Photo’s blending algorithm analyzes each of these images, compares them with each other, and decides which are better for the blending process. It automatically traces and places them into a single photograph, matching the scene, and adding shadows.
