This paper presents a new image synthesis method for image style transfer. For some common methods, the textures and colors in the style image are sometimes applied inappropriately to the content image, which generates artifacts. In order to improve the results, we propose a novel method based on a new strategy that combines both local and global style losses. On the one hand, a style loss function based on a local approach is used to keep the style details. On the other hand, another style

The results on various images show that the proposed method reduces artifacts while faithfully transferring the style image's characteristics and preserving the structure and color of the content image.
