© 2014 IEEE. Playing a vital role, saliency has been widely applied for various image analysis tasks, such as content-aware image retargeting, image retrieval and object detection. It is generally accepted that saliency detection can benefit from the integration of multiple visual features. However, most of the existing literatures fuse multiple features at saliency map level without considering cross-feature information, i.e. generate a saliency map based on several maps computed from an individual feature. In this paper, we propose a Multiple Feature Distance Preserving (MFDP) model to seamlessly integrate multiple visual features through an alternative optimization process. Our method outperforms the state-of-the-arts methods on saliency detection. Saliency detected by our method is further cooperated with seam carving algorithm and significantly improves the performance on image retargeting.
