Vade posted about the extremely sexy content-aware image resize “Seam Carving” a little over a month ago, and implementations for Gimp, Photoshop and a web2.0ish version – rsizr – are now available.
The rsizr.com serverÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s being hammered a bit at the moment, so the Ã¢â‚¬Å“SaveÃ¢â‚¬Â function takes rather a long time to work. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s easy enough to get around that, though – once you get your image the way you want, just take a screenshot of the window and cut the image out of it.
(I presume thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be a decent free Photoshop-plugin image carver Real Soon Now. In other news, one of the guys who came up with the idea has been hired by Adobe.)
