1. Automated Rule of Thirds Compliancy Sam Olver Sucheth Suresh

2. Rule of Thirds Overview • The “Rule of Thirds” grid divides a photograph horizontally and vertically into thirds • A viewer’s eyes are naturally drawn to the four intersections created by the grid • Aligning the subject of the photo to one of these intersections results in a more balanced looking image http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/ce/Rivertree_thirds_md.gif

3. Correcting Images to Follow the Rule of Thirds • Simplest method: Cropping • Results in loss of photo elements • Our method: Seam Carving • Remove seams on one side of a feature point (vertically and horizontally) to shift it to a rule of thirds intersection

4. Our Goal • Input a photograph containing a single face • Find locations of the subject’s eyes (or face center if eyes are undetectable) • Determine the minimum distance between a feature point and a rule of thirds intersection • Run the seam-carving algorithm to shift the feature point to the intersection

5. Implementation MATLAB Computer Vision System Toolbox Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing by Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir

9. More Advanced Applications • Automated profile picture correction • Manual image cropping, then automatic readjustment to follow the rule of thirds

10. Limitations • Unreliability in detecting feature points (eyes, face) • Large amounts of seam carving distorts the image

11. Summary • The rule of thirds is one of the core fundamentals that every photographer tries to follow. • This is an application that helps photographers adhere to this rule. • It has the potential to improve the quality of millions of images that are being uploaded on the web.
