Bilateral vs. WLS-based Boosting of Details


Figure 8: Boosting the BLF-based detail layers results in artifacts along the high-contrast edges (middle), which are absent when the decomposition is WLS-based (right). In the right part of each of the manipulated images medium scale details have been boosted, also resulting in halos when done using the BLF. (Input image courtesy of Norman Koren,
