While we have been developing a website that displayed user uploaded images in fixed size regions, we have encountered some interesting problems. Should we resize the image to fit the fixed size region? Should we crop the image? Maybe we should mix the two? The no-brainer solution is to crop the image by focusing on the center. This naîve solution gave amazingly acceptable results, but sometimes it fails badly if the interesting region lies outside the cropped zone. Our algorithm should be able to somehow locate automatically the interesting part of the image.
Here's an algorithm for automatically estimating what's the most important part of an image.
