The second type of human-computer interface is a free-hand-sketch based interface for image editing (e.g., moving, size-scaling, color-transforming parts of an image) is developed. The sketches drawn by the user on top of the image serve as a natural way of specifying an image part and the editing (e.g., move, deletion) operation to be performed.
Sketch-Based Object Selection in Images
To assist humans in referring to specific parts of an image, and performing desired operations on these parts, through natural-like interpersonal communication, e.g. by freely drawing sketches over the image which mean specific editorial operations such as move, expand and delete.
