Abstract

In this paper, we propose the improved seam merging method for content-aware image resizing. This method merges a two-pixel-width seam element into one new pixel in image reduction and inserts a new pixel between the two pixels in image enlargement. To preserve important contents and structure, our method uses importance and structure energies. Using the cartoon image of an original image for calculation of structure energy, our method can preserve main structure. In addition, we introduce new energy to suppress distortion generated by excessive reduction or enlargement in the iterative merging or inserting. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can produce satisfactory results in both image reduction and enlargement.
