This paper presents an interactive image-smoothing tool based on properties and manipulation of image level sets. This tool uses PDE-based level-set smoothing to preserve edge sharpness while smoothing noise and jagged contours. Unlike existing approaches using PDEs, the duration and areas of application are controlled interactively with immediate feedback to the user. Interaction issues are addressed, and parameters for adjusting the PDE are automatically estimated based on image characteristics.
