Abstract

Content-aware image resizing (CAIR) is desired because it preserves prominent regions in a resized image. However, CAIR requires high computational complexity to perform in mobile devices, though it is desired for these displays. Moreover, transmitting the side information for CAIR from the encoder is a problem since it usually requires high bitrates compared with those for image data. In this paper, we present a rate-dependent CAIR method that produce various retargeting results based on the bitrates for side information. Furthermore, we apply the proposed technique to wavelet-based image coding. Our proposed content-aware image coding method provides good performances for both CAIR and image coding.
