Image processing is a quickly developing field of computer science, especially with the growth of computer vision and generative artificial intelligence. For my project, I focused on object removal, where a targeted object or area can be removed from a digital image. I first accomplished this by implementing a seam carving algorithm, where rows or columns of pixels called seams are removed from an image, that prioritizes the removal of seams that include targeted areas. I next explored a digital inpainting algorithm that would replace targeted areas, rather than removing them, in order to maintain the exact image dimensions and to prevent distortion.
