Abstract

Image mosaic plays an important role in producing panoramic image. We proposed an automated seamless mosaics algorithm. In our proposal, firstly, we use particle swarm optimization (PSO) to find a certain area which contains sufficient objective characters, then we use pattern matching method to search the matching patch in another image and adjust image; at last, we make use of feathering blending to provide a smooth transition between overlapping areas and get automated seamless mosaics of images.
