Amazing New Photo Editing Technology

Photo editing technology is evolving rapidly. From consumer products to experimental research at universities, a wide range of techniques and inventions are being produced. Read on to learn more about the most amazing advancements in photo editing technology.

Adding another Dimension

Researchers have developed a new way to add extra dimensions to a photograph. Editors using the technology can turn and flip objects in any direction. It even allows for the exposure of surfaces that weren’t visible in the original photograph. A research team at Carnegie Mellon University is using 3D numerical models of everyday objects to accomplish this feat. The realistic looking edits are made by fitting the models into the geometry of the photograph. The lighting, colors and texture are then adjusted to maintain consistency with the original. This technique gives photo editors the ability to move objects in space when editing a photo. The same techniques can be used on objects in paintings or historical photographs.
