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 […]

Watershed OpenCV

The watershed algorithm is a classic algorithm used for segmentation and is especially useful when extracting touching or overlapping objects in images, such as the coins in the figure above. Using traditional image processing methods such as thresholding and contour detection, we would be unable to extract each individual coin from the image — but by leveraging the […]
