Seam carving with OpenCV, Python, and scikit-image

Easily one of my all-time favorite papers in computer vision literature is Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing by Avidan and Shamir from Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL). Originally published in the SIGGRAPH 2007 proceedings, I read this paper for the first time during my computational photography class as an undergraduate student. This paper, along with […]
