Abstract

Using gaze information in designing tone-mapping operators has many potentials over traditional global tone-mapping operators. In this paper, we evaluate a recently proposed real-time tone mapping operator based on gaze information and show that it is highly dependent on the input scene. We propose an important modification to the evaluated method to relief this dependency and to enhance the appearance of the resultant images using smaller processing area. Experimental results show that our method outperforms the evaluated technique.
