PIXEL FUSION BASED STEREO IMAGE RETARGETING

Abstract

Image retargeting attempts to adapt images to different devices while preserving the salient contents. Most existing methods address retargeting of a single image. In this paper, we propose a novel image retargeting method for resizing a pair of stereo images. Naively retargeting each image independently will distort the geometric structure and will impair the perception of the 3-D structure of the scene. We introduce an extension to the 2-D image retargeting method that works on a pair of stereo images. We demonstrate the performance of our method on a number of challenging indoor and outdoor stereo images. Experimental results show that our method is able to provide visually comfortable resized images when the resizing ratio is relatively high.
