Imagina is a next-generation image viewer and editing tool. Based around 3D technology, it offers the finest viewing experience yet for Windows-based PCs. Developed by a graphics programming veteran with the sole intent of having one of the most satisfying and intuitive user interfaces around, you just won’t want to go back to anything else. We wanted Imagina to be a totally desirable image viewer, without being overly fussy or contrived. We also wanted it to be able to fix your pictures in all the most common ways you would want, as easily as possible, without ever having to leave the software. But the editing had to be good, really good, as only the very best results will do when it comes to your treasured photographs. We think we’ve succeeded on all counts, but don’t just take our word for it, let yourself be the judge …

We present a system that composes a realistic picture from a simple freehand sketch annotated with text labels. The composed picture is generated by seamlessly stitching several photographs in agreement with the sketch and text labels; these are found by searching the Internet. Although online image search generates many inappropriate results, our system is able to automatically select suitable photographs to generate a high quality composition, using a filtering scheme to exclude undesirable images. We also provide a novel image blending algorithm to allow seamless image composition. Each blending result is given a numeric score, allowing us to find an optimal combination of discovered images. Experimental results show the method is very successful; we also evaluate our system using the results from two user studies.
