How smart cropping works

Empty image

Image content

You have a website with a lot of image content that comes from various sources and you need to present it in one or more predefined sizes.

Ugly thumbnails

In a lot of cases the original aspect ratio of the image is very different from the sizes it needs to fit in. Central cropping would cut faces, bodies, or objects of interest in half.

Smart Cropping to the rescue!

Our smart cropping analyzes the composition of the image and how 'interesting' the different parts of it are. After that it automatically suggests what is the best region to crop, in order to preserve the most relevant part of the image!

Use Cases

Online Media

A lot of photographers are out shooting photos for your articles. When you have to present them on a predefined-size slot on your homepage, they need to be cropped. Imagga's Smart Cropping handles this the right way.

Mobile Applications

A lot of different resolutions, aspect ratios, thumbnails and views of the same image are needed to provide the right user experience in your image centric mobile application. Our smart cropping will make you forget about the inconvenient central cropping.

Content Management Systems

If your data team uploads a lot of image content to your system, they would have to adjust and crop thousands of photos every day. This can be hard for them and also requires time that could otherwise be spent on doing something more creative and productive. Our smart cropping solves this problem automatically.
