In this paper, we present a new, improved seam carving algorithm. Seam carving efficiently removes pixels from an image to produce a retargeted image. It has proved popular with users and has been used as a component in many retargeting algorithms. We introduce the visibility map, a new framework for pixel removing image editing methods. This allows us to cast retargeting as a binary graph labelling problem. We derive a general algorithm which uses seam carving operations for efficient greedy… CONTINUE READING
