Abstract

Image colorization refers to the task of assigning color values to grayscale images. While previous work is based on either user input or very large training data sets, the proposed method is fully automatic and based on several orders of magnitude less training data. A Random Forest variation is tailored towards the regression task of estimating the proper color values when presented with a grayscale image patch. A simple position prior as well as scale invariance are included in order to improve the estimation results. The proposed approach leads to satisfying results over various colorization tasks and compares favorably with state of the art based on convolutional networks.
