    Content-Aware Image Resizing

    Two Israeli professors, Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir, have demonstrated a new method of resizing images called 'Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing'. The method figures out which parts of an image are less important and can be discarded when resizing, resulting in changes to the aspect ratio which do not look distorted.

    It's fascinating, and people are raving about it, but I can't see myself being a big fan. I guess I'm too much of a purist to be happy about my images being treated like this.

    Outstanding effort nonetheless. See more...

    It seems to be a fun little toy, but that's all it seems for now. Maybe it could have a use for web banners, etc, but I doubt it would be very usable for images of real objects (unless you want to make someone disappear like in one of their example videos)

    smart resizing

    sounds like it's a big deal of work, that sort of job was the business of designers, not the compressor algorythm's
