Learning Object Placement via Dual-Path Graph Completion

Siyuan Zhou, Liu Liu, Li Niu, Liqing Zhang ;


"Object placement aims to place a foreground object over a background image with a suitable location and size. In this work, we treat object placement as a graph completion problem and propose a novel graph completion module (GCM). The background scene is represented by a graph with multiple nodes at different spatial locations with various receptive fields. The foreground object is encoded as a special node that should be inserted at a reasonable place in this graph. We also design a dual-path framework upon the structure of GCM to fully exploit annotated composite images. With extensive experiments on OPA dataset, our method proves to significantly outperform existing methods in generating plausible object placement without loss of diversity."
