This paper presents a new method for zooming out an image. As the Impressionism is one of the most complete painting technique, able to preserve notably details, light effects at a close or far range, we propose a method based on an impressionist approach. The input image is analyzed and described through impressionist characteristics that will be preserved when a zoom out will be realized. We created a set of characteristics of images and the corresponding algorithms to compute them. These characteristics are then used to build a set of zooming out algorithms. To validate the process, the zooms out have been applied to different types of images: photographs of paintings and other photographs. Results prove that this approach is more suitable than existing ones.
