A Seam Carving GUI
Note: The source code requires a Qt4 development environment to build. In Ubuntu you can get the packages libqt4-dev, under windows get Qt 4 from Trolltech here.
I have moved the download of binary and source distributions to the Google Code project.
Made the following improvements and properly build a Mac Version.
- Upgraded to CAIR 2.6.1
- Can view images horizontal energy function as well as vertical
- Created a cursor when hovering over the image to represent the mark area size
- Retain/Remove mask is also shrunk with the image (so you can see how usefull it was)
- You can select to erase areas marked green/red (retain/remove) with the cursor
Screenshots of the GUI and some showing of of the features:
New backed based on CAIR, faster, new weight and quality options, undo/repeat, and more
Screenshot of the new GUI showing the ball image through the edge filter:
Some examples of how good the resizing is:
A nice castle image before any retargeting:
Mark areas that we want to remove and we want retain, in this case we want to make sure the castle is not distorted and remove the pesky pedestrian:
The re targeted image, pretty slick eh?
