The authors present a framework for interactive design of new image stylisations using a wide range of predefined filter blocks. Both novel and off-the-shelf image filtering and rendering techniques are extended and combined to allow the user to unleash their creativity to intuitively invent, modify, and tune new styles from a given set of filters. In parallel to this manual design, they propose a novel procedural approach that automatically assembles sequences of filters, leading to unique and

In order to achieve this real-time performance, they use the Best Linear Adaptive Enhancement (BLADE) framework -an interpretable shallow machine learning method that simulates complex filter blocks in real time. Their representative results include over a dozen styles designed using their interactive tool, a set of styles created procedurally, and new filters trained with their BLADE approach.
