Abstract: A photograph that has visually dominant subjects in general induces stronger aesthetic interest. Inspired by this, we have developed a new approach to enhance image aesthetics through saliency retargeting. Our method alters low-level image features of the objects in the photograph such that their computed saliency measurements in the modified image become consistent with the intended order of their visual importance. The goal of our approach is to produce an image that can redirect the viewers' attention to the most important objects in the image, and thus making these objects the main subjects. Since many modified images can satisfy the same specified order of visual importance, we trained an aesthetics score prediction model to pick the one with the best aesthetics. Results from our user experiments support the effectiveness of our approach. © 2010 IEEE.
