A group of students from China has created PhotoSketch—an app that takes a basic sketch and turns it into a realistic photo. According to the video, PhotoSketch searches the web for images that match the description that you give to the objects. By grouping these images and comparing them to your sketch, the program determines possible matches and create a new compiled photo.
Looking at the images, it would appear that even I would be capable of generating a quality image out of PhotoSketch.
