fixing your images

James Hays and Alexei Efros from Carnegie Mellon University have developed an algorithm to help people who want to remove bits of photographs. Soon anyone with a digital camera will be able to literally ‘erase out’ any unwanted parts within their in photographs, by using technology which scans popular sites like flickr, for the replacement elements. It can even replace features like light sources, colour variation and specific camera angles in any given photo, as well as specific objects like buildings or people. The team eventually aims to build online image libraries that anyone can use to edit their favourite or worst snaps.
