PhotoSketch: Doodles to Photo-Realistic Images

PhotoSketch is a web application for converting a crude doodle or stickman drawing into a photo-realistic image. You sketch the crude drawubg with a simple drawing program, adding descriptive labels to each object. PhotoSketch then searches for appropriate photographs containing one of the objects, and in PhotoShop-like fashion, blends the found photos together to match the sketch.

I hesitated to run this story since it had such heavy coverage on the big tech blogs, like Gizmodo, that the PhotoSketch site is presently unreachable. Maybe that situation will clear up in a few days. In the meantime, here is the Gizmodo Photosketch article with a short video and a gallery that illustrates the program, which was created by some Chinese university students.
