Paper Abstract

We present an algorithm for smart image fitting: changing the size of an image so that it may fit "naturally" within a given frame. As the frame's dimensions will generally differ from that of the image, the algorithm preserves important details in their original aspect ratio, while less important details undergo more substantial deformations. This problem is useful for many commercial print applications. One example is the HP SmartStream Designer, which is a tool to create variable and personalized content documents.
