Automatic Detection and Correction for Glossy Reflections in Digital Photograph

The popularization of digital technology has made shooting digital photos and using related applications a part of daily life. However, the use of flash, to compensate for low atmospheric lighting, often leads to overexposure or glossy reflections. This paper proposes an auto-detection and inpainting technique to correct overexposed faces in digital photography. This algorithm segments the skin color in the photo as well as uses face detection and capturing to determine candidate bright spots on the face. Based on the statistical analysis of color brightness and filtering, the bright spots are identified. Finally, bright spots are corrected through inpainting technology. From the experimental results, this paper demonstrates the high accuracy and efficiency of the method.
