An image and video retargeting algorithm using an adaptive scaling function is proposed in this work. We first construct an importance map which uses multiple features: gradient, saliency, and motion difference. Then, we determine an adaptive scaling function, which represents a scaling factor of each column in the source image. Finally, the target image is constructed with a weighted average filter using those scaling factors. Moreover, we extend this algorithm to video sequence. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm provides better results than conventional retargeting methods.
