A Coarse-to-Fine Framework for Learned Color Enhancement with Non-Local Attention

Chaowei Shan, Zhizheng Zhang, Zhibo Chen

Automatic color enhancement is aimed to adaptively adjust photos to expected styles and tones. For current learned methods in this field, global harmonious perception and local details are hard to be well-considered in a single model simultaneously. To address this problem, we propose a coarse-to-fine framework with non-local attention for color enhancement in this paper. Within our framework, we propose to divide enhancement process into channel-wise enhancement and pixel-wise refinement performed by two cascaded Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). In channel-wise enhancement, our model predicts a global linear mapping for RGB channels of input images to perform global style adjustment. In pixel-wise refinement, we learn a refining mapping using residual learning for local adjustment. Further, we adopt a non-local attention block to capture the long-range dependencies from global information for subsequent fine-grained local refinement. We evaluate our proposed framework on the commonly using benchmark and conduct sufficient experiments to demonstrate each technical component within it.
