Abstract

<p>Conventional image retargeting methods fail to avoid distortion in the case where visually important regions are distributed all over the image. To reduce distortions, this paper proposes a novel image retargeting method that incorporates letterboxing into an image warping framework. Letterboxing has the advantage of producing results without distortion or content loss although being unable to use the entire display area. Therefore, it is preferable to combine a retargeting method with a letterboxing operator when displaying images in full screen. Experimental results show that the proposed method is superior to conventional methods in terms of visual quality measured by an objective metric.</p>
