Abstract

The preparation of large amounts of high-quality training data has always been the bottleneck for the performance of supervised learning methods. It is especially time-consuming for complicated tasks such as photo enhancement. A recent approach to ease data annotation creates realistic training data automatically with optimization. In this paper, we improve upon this approach by learning image-similarity which, in combination with a Covariance Matrix Adaptation optimization method, allows us to create higher quality training data for enhancing photos. We evaluate our approach on challenging real world photo-enhancement images by conducting a perceptual user study, which shows that its performance compares favorably with existing approaches.
