Image Algorithm

PhotoBot implements all sorts of image manipulation functionality, like Adobe PhotoShop. This way the computer could become an indepent collage-artist, for example.

Excerpt of what Tom is working on, using PhotoBot:

"Catapult queries Yahoo! for images regarding a given subject. If "tree" is supplied as subject, Catapult looks for images on leaves, tree trunks, tree stems, etc... These images are downloaded and bricolated into a composition. Basically, the edges of each image fade out so they can interlock, and the image is merged with a hue color returned from prism regarding the subject (e.g. green hue 120 for trees)."

This is an older document - the PhotoBot and Catapult projects mentioned have transitioned into Core Image and Photo Objects respectively.
