Free photo to art processing. Additional parameters of AlterDraw online photo filter.
Modern neural network technologies allow you to automatically convert photo to art in just a few clicks. You can do this with the free online photo filter AlterDraw.com, which allows you to automatically convert a photo to a painting in the style of another style reference image using neural style transfer technology on the server. Since processing is performed online, you do not need to install any additional software or hardware and everything works the same on your desktop, tablet or smartphone.
I have already made an overview of the AlterDraw capabilities and major automatic photo to art conversion parameters. Let’s consider what additional parameters can be set in order to get the best photo processing result.
Preservation of people
Photo styling leads to its distortions by reproduced style elements. This can result in the loss of essential image details such as facial features:
[People preservation] parameter tells the algorithm to save people during rendering. Styling with the maximum value of the parameter ensures that there is no styling of people at all, which looks a bit unnatural:
It is recommended to set intermediate value of the parameter, making slight styling of people and full styling of the background:
With the [Skin Preservation] option, you can further instruct the algorithm to preserve face and skin during style transfer. Let style a person with the maximum value of this parameter:
Style strength change
The [Style strength change] parameter allows you to control how style transfer strength changes across the image. The [auto] setting changes the style according to the proximity of the objects to the viewer — the closer, the weaker is the styling, allowing for preservation of the foreground objects. By setting other values of this parameter, you can achieve a gradual increase in artistic effect from left to right, right to left, top to bottom and bottom to top.
Left to right change of style transfer
Bottom to top change of style transfer
