In order to resolve the apparent boundary issue that the conventional image compositing method encounters when applied to images of different texture details,  a new image compositing framework was proposed, which decomposed an image to a base layer and a detail layer, the base layer implementing the seamless fusion of color at the boundary, while the detail layer implementing the smooth transition of texture details at the boundary. The processing was as follows: fusing the base layer,  synthesizing a new detail layer and then adding it to the fused base layer to get the final result. A weight map was computed by the measure of texture details and distances of pixels to the boundary and used to guide the generation of new detail layer. Experimental results on many images of different texture features showed that the proposed algorithm can effectively realize the seamless fusion of color and smooth transition of texture details. The proposed method produced more realistic composites than the traditional method.
