Paper Abstract

Thumbnail images provide mobile computing users of an easier and smoother image exploring experience. Recognizing the objects in an image is important in many retrieval tasks, but thumbnails generated by shrinking the original image often contain less information. The ability of computer vision systems to identify key components of images is investigated in this research. We evaluate automatic cropping techniques 1) based on a general method that detects salient portions of images, and 2) based on automatic face detection. Both of the two methods have been implemented on the mobile computing platform and a desktop platform as a comparison. The experimental results demonstrate the validness of the proposed approaches.
