iPad App: Emotion Modifier

Modify the color composition of an image or photo to meet your expected emotional effect. Your image/photo can have more than 180 different kinds of aesthetical/affective effects, such as “romantic, elegant, clear, modern, antique, and so on”. Your input can be just an emotional word or a reference image. Try it free! Then you will satisfy with “the new image/photo”.

Emotion Guided Image Gallery

The image gallery contains about 10,000 images organized according to interpretable aesthetic features, including 3-color theme, 5-color theme, color pattern, shape and composition. And the users can explore by individual aesthetic types. Because these aspects directly relate to emotions, the gallery is called emotion guided. The gallery can provide inspirations to creators of paintings and graphic design. If combined with various image search techniques, it can be much more useful to art design.

 Color theme database

This databse contains more than 40,000 5-color themes, each of which has a coordinate in the image-scale space with two dimensions warm-cool and hard-soft. These 5-color themes are collected from "Art of Color Combinations" (490 themes) and Adobe Kuler (44,986 themes, kuler.adobe.com). This database is part of the database in the paper "Affective image adjustment with a single word".

 Affective words

The affective words are for my paper "Affective image adjustment with a single word" in The Visual Computer, which contain 180 English words and corresponding coordinates in the image-scale space.
