Scribble Selection

interactive object segmentation on mobile devices (Photoshop Touch 2012)

Scribble Selection is one of the shinning features of Adobe Photoshop Touch App, available for both iPad and Android Tablets. I designed and developed the main algorithm behind this feature.

John Nack, former Product Manger of Photoshop Touch commented on this feature: “If I had to boil the app down to one feature, it is this: Take two images, remove the background from one, and then blend the two images together to create a new scene. The Scribble Selection tool lets you use your finger or a stylus to quickly draw on the foreground object you want to keep and the background you want to delete. Then tap Extract, and the background disappears.”

A popular Youtube video demo of the tool is here.
