The algorithms are:
- Full neighbourhood search algorithm of Scott Draves and Alexei Efros + Thomas Leung and Li-Yi Wei + Marc Levoy is probably the simplest texture synthesis algorithm imaginable.
- K-coherent neighbourhood search of Michael Ashikhmin and Xin Tong + Jingdan Zhangz + Ligang Liu + Xi Wangz + Baining Guo + Heung-Yeung Shum takes computational burden from the synthesis to the analysis part and therefore is better suited for synthesizing large textures.
- Resynthesis algorithm of P. F. Harrison is scale-invariant, fast, supports constraints and practically never produces completely unsatisfactory results.
Note that my implementations are not completely true to the original papers.
