Now, you do not have to wrap your camera lenses in dark cloths in an attempt to get rid of reflections.
Most of the time, taking pictures through windows rarely works, but now you do not have to suffer more because scientists have created a better solution; an algorithm that they say can automatically remove all reflections on a digital image.
The fact has been exploited by the algorithm that photos taken through windows often feature two nearly identical reflections, slightly offset from each other.
Daily Mail quoted a PhD in Computer saying, in Boston, the windows are usually double-paned windows for heat isolation during the winter.
The Daily Mail further quoted, how that software actually works and how does it apply.
‘With that kind of window, there’s one reflection coming from the inner pane and another reflection from the outer pane.
The two slightly offset reflections can be used to decide which parts of the image have unwanted reflection, and apply corrections to remove it.
But the algorithm does more than just look for double reflections. It also uses a technique through which the image can be divided into 8-by-8 blocks of pixels.
