Adobe Research is currently offering internships. To apply, please contact us with your CV, a list of your research interests, and any specific researchers you would like to work with.
Internships at Adobe Research are an excellent way for graduate students pursuing a Ph.D. to engage in industrial research. Interns work on exciting technology that is routinely published at top academic conferences and integrated into software that impacts the lives of millions of customers.
We developed a system that addresses the printability issues by providing automatic detection and correction of the problematic cases. Our system considers stresses caused by gravity and gripping forces. The structural problems are evaluated by combining a lightweight structure analysis solver with 3D medial axis approximations. If areas with high structural stress are found, the model is corrected by repeatedly applying hollowing, thickening, or strut insertion. Our system is designed to create a model that is visually similar to the original model, while possessing greater structural integrity.
Any projection of a 3D scene into a wide-angle image unavoidably results in distortion. Current projection methods either bend straight lines in the scene, or locally distort the shapes of scene objects. We present a method that minimizes this distortion by adapting the projection to content in the scene, such as salient scene regions and lines, in order to preserve their shape. Our optimization technique computes a spatially-varying projection that respects user-specified constraints while minimizing a set of energy terms that measure wide-angle image distortion. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach by showing results on a variety of wide-angle photographs, as well as comparisons to standard projections.
Photo editing can be a challenging task, and it becomes even more difficult on the small, portable screens of mobile devices that are now frequently used to capture and edit images. To address this problem we present PixelTone, a multimodal photo editing interface that combines speech and direct manipulation. We observe existing image editing practices and derive a set of principles that guide our design.
