Image matting and color transfer are combined to achieve image composition. Firstly, digital matting is used to pull out the region of interest. Secondly, taking color harmonization into account, color transfer techniques are introduced in pasting the region onto the target image. Experimental results show that the proposed approach generates visually pleasing composite images.
