Example-based texture synthesis algorithms generate novel texture images from example data. A popular hierarchical pixel-based approach uses spatial jitter to introduce diversity, at the risk of breaking coarse structure beyond repair. We propose a multiscale descriptor that enables appearance-space jitter, which retains structure. This idea enables repurposing of existing texture synthesis implementations for a qualitatively different problem statement and class of inputs: generating hybrids of structured images.
