Smart Autogeneration of Thumbnails Banners, and Socials with Content Aware Resize

Earlier this week, we introduced media/ContentAwareResize, a microservice which crops images to any size... while ensuring that the important parts do not get removed! It does so by detecting important content (faces, etc) and centering the crop on these components, so you don't accidentally...

How to Rotate Images in Python Using a Horizon Detection Algorithm

When we look at an image, it’s fairly easy to detect the horizon line.

For computers, this task is somewhat more difficult: they need to understand the basic structure of the image, locate edges which might indicate a horizon, and pare out the edges which do not matter. Fortunately, Algorithmia...
