This is the first release of SEAMonster from October, 2007
Features included in this first release:
- For maximum reusability, the seam carving algorithm is implemented in its own assembly (separate from the client application).
- Seams may be carved both horizontally and vertically.
- Two seam functions are included: cumulative and standard. Cumulative should faithfully represent the function in the original paper.
- There are three methods for comparing seams: total, average, and diffbias. Diffbias is experimental and may not be very useful.
- A simple bias map function makes it easy to preserve image details or ask for them to be removed.
- Multiple energy functions are included. Sobel is likely the most useful.
- Carved images can also be saved or copied to the clipboard.
Note that the algorithm is computationally expensive, so for testing, it's much faster to work with smaller images.
