A Fast Wavelet-Based Seam Carving Algorithm for Image Resizing
Keywords:Image resizing, Seam carving, Wavelet tree, SPIHT
This paper presents a fast image resizing algorithm based on wavelet trees in the framework of the benchmark image coder known as set partitioning in hierarchical trees (SPIHT). It takes full advantage of the hierarchical structure of wavelet trees to gradually remove seams of insignificant wavelet trees in a scale recursive manner. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is preferable especially in terms of computation time.
