Abstract

Image retargeting is a new image processing task that renders the change of aspect ratio in images. One of the most famous image-retargeting algorithms is seam-carving. Although seam-carving is fast and straightforward, it usually distorts the images. In this paper, we introduce a new seam-carving algorithm that not only has the simplicity of the original seam-carving but also lacks the usual unwanted distortion existed in the original method. The positional distribution of seams is introduced. We show that the proposed method outperforms the original seam-carving in terms of retargeted image quality assessment and seam coagulation measures.
