Hi all,

Thought you might be interested in this snippet I came across on 
Flickr.  "Seam carving" or content-aware image sizing, is based on a paper 
presented at SIGGRAPH 2007.  The techniques present another option for 
resizing images instead of scaling or cropping.  These techniques allow 
images to be dynamically reduced or expanded in a way that preserves the 
image contents.  They can also be used to remove objects from images.  

There is a great YouTube video discussing the technique and providing some 
interesting examples (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-SSu3tJ3ns)  and an 
interactive demo (http://swieskowski.net/carve/)

The original paper is also available on website of the author, Dr. Ariel 
Shamir.  (http://www.faculty.idc.ac.il/arik/)
