Stationnary Gaussian textures and associated textons

Color texture samples
Gray-level texture samples
Source codes


The color and gray-level images below are synthetic Gaussian textures.
New samples can be easily generated by convolving the initial sample with a Gaussian white noise image or by phase randomization.
If you need to synthesize larger samples, you can use the source codes below that implement the notion of texton described in the following paper:

A. Desolneux, L. Moisan, S. Ronsin, "A texton for Random Phase and Gaussian textures", preprint MAP5 nº 2015-xx, 2014.
PDF (preprint)

Click on each image to see the original size sample and its associated texton.
All these images can be freely used. Thanks to Bruno Galerne for contributing to the image database.
If you have nice Gaussian texture samples to share, I will be happy to add them to this database.
