Many images contain salient regions that are surrounded by too much uninteresting background material and are not as enlightening as a sensibly cropped version. The choice of the best picture window both at capture time and during subsequent processing is normally subjective and a wholly manual task. This paper proposes a method of automatically cropping visual material based upon a new measure of visual attention that reflects the informativeness of the image.
