Content Aware Image Resizing

(Another one stuck in the flush mechanism.)

The narration is textbook nerd, but get over it and watch the whole thing. These guys and their technology are going places. Gone places actually, one of them’s already been snapped up by Adobe.

  1. Hi,
    If you are looking for a software to try out seam carving, take a look at

    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,

  2. Check out for a free 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!) for example images

  3. I just tried Rsizr there Will and I’m impressed, but the usability could really use some work. It took me a few minutes to figure out that I need to drag the handles back down to the carved size after the work is done – why not just leave it at the carved size? – and the lack of tooltips is a major no-no.

    I hope you’ll address these issues, as it really is a useful tool that I’ll be back to use again — I actually needed carved images in a hurry for a project, and it did the job perfectly. And now I need to get back to it, unfortunately. :(
