Stunning Video Of “Content Aware Image Resizing”

Here’s your Monday video fix, a presentation on some content aware image resizing software which has some truly jaw-dropping capabilities. Dr. Ariel Shamir and Dr. Shai Avidan (of Adobe) have developed a way to resize images using something they call “seam carving” which lowers distortion in images.

Granted, it sounds kind of boring, but the results are stunning. Be sure to check out Dr. Shamir’s site which has some technical details and a white paper for the curious.

As Arrington writes in a post on Techcrunch, I want this to make its way into Photoshop, though personally I’m willing to wait.
