  • [July, 2018] Our paper Stroke Controllable Fast Style Transfer with Adaptive Receptive Fields has been accepted by ECCV 2018. Our review will be updated correspondingly.

  • [June, 2018] Upload a new version of our paper on arXiv which adds several missing papers (e.g., the work of Wang et al. ZM-Net: Real-time Zero-shot Image Manipulation Network).

  • [Apr, 2018] We have released a new version of the paper with significant changes at: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1705.04058.pdf
    Appreciate the feedback!

  • [Feb, 2018] Update the Images (Images_neuralStyleTransferReview_v2) in the Materials. Add the results of Li et al.'s NIPS 2017 paper.

  • [Jan, 2018] Pre-trained models and all the content images, the style images, and the stylized results in the paper have been released.
