Image warping is becoming increasingly ubiquitous with the rapid increment of photo editing needs by common users. However, current image warping interface remains hard to master due to the complex interactive operations. This paper proposes an intuitive sketch-based image warping interface. A sketch-driven deformation method is presented based on the Bounded Biharmonic Weights. A set of intuitive sketch deformation operations are introduced. Finally, high-quality image warping results are demonstrated in this paper.
