Content Aware Image Resizing

This is the kind of technology that makes birds do a jingle. Apparently the guys that made this technology got hired by Adobe the next day.

  1. My God, no wonder Adobe husked them away. Photoshop is geting ready to be even more of a killer app.

  2. Aw man..this is going to make hell for myspace daters. As if the ‘myspace angle’ for photographs wasn’t enough deception.

    I don’t myspace date..just sayin’.

  3. Hi,
    If you are looking for a software to try out seam carving, take a look at http://www.thegedanken.com/retarget

    The program that you can download there (for Windows and Linux, and free) is already highly optimized concerning speed, and apart from enlarging or decreasing image size you can also use masks to protect or delete certain parts of your image.

    Have fun,
    Irmgard

  4. Check out rsizr.com for a Flash-based implementation of seam carving that lets you resize your own images, both in height and width simultaneously, in real time. (You can rescale and crop images too!)
