Stereoscopic displays are becoming ubiquitous, ranging from large 3-D TVs to small mobile phones. Stereoscopic photos need to be carefully adapted to be effectively viewed on the displays other than originally intended. In this paper, we present a method that can automatically crop and scale an existing stereoscopic photo to a variety of displays while preserving its aesthetic value. We formulate stereoscopic photo adaptation as an optimization problem that aims to preserve the aesthetic value of the input photo. We define a wide range of energy terms to preserve the stereoscopic photo aesthetics by borrowing rules from stereoscopic photography. Our experiments on a wide variety of stereoscopic photos demonstrate that our method can robustly produce display-dependent stereoscopic photos that deliver pleasant viewing experiences.
