Seam carving is a popular technique for content aware image retargeting. It can be used to deliberately manipulate images, for example, change the GPS locations of a building or displace/remove roads in a satellite image. This paper proposes a novel approach for detecting and localizing seams in such images. While there are methods to detect seam carving based manipulations, this is the first time that robust localization and detection of seam carving forgery is made possible. We also propose a… 



Detection of seam carving and localization of seam insertions in digital images

This paper employs a machine learning based framework to distinguish between seam-carved (or seam-inserted) and normal images, and sees that the 324-dimensional Markov feature, consisting of 2D difference histograms in the block-based Discrete Cosine Transform domain, is well-suited for the classification task.

Seam Carving Detection and Localization using Two-Stage Deep Neural Networks

This paper proposes a two-step method to detect and localize seam carved images, and experimental results show that the approach is effective in detecting and localizing seam carve images.

Detection of seam carving-based video retargeting using forensics hash

A forensics hash-based tampering detection and localization approach is proposed for seam carving-based video retargeting and shows that the proposed forensics approach can effectively estimate the exact amount and rough locations of deleted seam carving surfaces.

Deep Convolutional Neural Network for Identifying Seam-Carving Forgery

A convolutional neural network (CNN) architecture comprising five types of network blocks specialized in capturing local artifacts caused by seam carving is designed, and an ensemble module is further adopted to both enhance performance and comprehensively analyze the features in the local areas.

Seam carving for content-aware image resizing

Effective resizing of images should not only use geometric constraints, but consider the image content as well. We present a simple image operator called seam carving that supports content-aware

Splicing Detection and Localization In Satellite Imagery Using Conditional GANs

The use of a Conditional Generative Adversarial Network (cGAN) is described to identify the presence of such spliced forgeries within satellite images and identify their locations and shapes.

A Convolutional Neural Network Based Seam Carving Detection Scheme for Uncompressed Digital Images

Experimental results have demonstrated that, compared with the current state-of-the-art, the proposed CNN based deep learning scheme can largely boost the classification rates as the seam carving rate is rather low.

Detecting seam carved images using uniform local binary patterns

Experimental results show that the proposed blind detection based uniform local binary patterns (ULBP) has the best performance among the three methods under a variety of setting.
