We introduce a non-uniform composition that integrates multiple rendering styles in a picture driven by an importance map. This map, either issued from saliency estimation or designed by a user, is introduced both in the creation of the multiple styles and in the final composition. Our approach accommodates a variety of stylization techniques, such as color desaturation, line drawing, blurring, edge-preserving smoothing and enhancement. We illustrate the versatility of the proposed approach and the variety of rendering styles on different applications such as images, videos, 3D scenes and even mixed reality. We also demonstrate that such an approach may help in directing user attention.
